Quilts have been used for hundreds of years as vehicles for thought and political action: now more than ever! Join textile artist Nora Renick Rinehart for an afternoon of art and action. First, you’ll learn about a few projects - historic and contemporary - that combine activism with quilting. Then you’ll learn some basic embroidery stitches and create a collaborative signature quilt to mark the occasion.
Every Stitch Counts: Quilts, Activism and Making Your Mark this past Sunday was terrific. Big thanks to Nora Renick-Rinehart for teaching us the history of activism in quilts and as well as how to embroider. Together we made a beautiful signature tumbling block quilt. Big thanks to the Forest Park Public Library for co-hosting this event with us.
