Saturday, November 21, 2020 – Maria Shell – “Building Community Through Quilts” – Online Quilt Day Lecture
In 2014, Maria Shell spent two months as an artist-in-residence at the McColl Center for Art + Innovation in Charlotte, North Carolina. While there, she worked weekly with a formerly chronically homeless community now living in Moore Place. By teaching basic sewing skills to the residents, she developed a relationship with the residents of Moore Place that eventually led to the making of a community quilt that celebrated the residents and their journey towards finding a home and a community. Since then, Maria has gone on to work with communities and organizations across the US helping them to also build quilts and share their stories.
Active GAAQG members can join us online via Zoom at our Quilt Day meeting on Saturday, November 21, 2020. The meeting will start promptly at 9:15 a.m. (you should join the Zoom meeting at 9:00). Maria’s lecture will begin after the business section of the meeting.
Instructions on how to join the meeting will be sent to active GAAQG members in November.
