This weekend, I was among 40-50 fiber artists who created quilts for this exhibit "The Journey of Hope in America"! A reception was held from 3 to 5 p.m. on April 17, 2010 at the National Afro-American Museum & Cultural Center in Wilberforce OH.

The exhibit, curated by Carolyn L. Mazloomi --- she is absolutely the GREATEST !




It was a "hey-day" experience for me - - - as we signed each other's books (JOURNEY OF HOPE) and shared our inspiration and the quilts we stitched in order to commemorate the election of Barack Obama as the first U.S. president of African-American descent. The reception was well attended with about 150 persons.... wonderful!!!



Exhibit runs through Dec. 18 in Wilberforce, OH before going on tour. Visit www.ohiohistory.org/journeyofhope
