Class Description

Drop-in all day to be a part of the quilt! Participants can write a phrase, draw a quick picture, or put anything they think of on a square of fabric. The squares are then knotted into a loose felt quilt that captures the spirit of the community today and can grow into the future.

In partnership with Bahama Village Music Program and Black Educators Memorial Project

Supported by Community Foundation of the Florida Keys and Florida Keys Council of the Arts
