Here's a link for the Threads of Resistance Show as well as the show's travel schedule. Check it out, you may be able to see it in person! Currently, the next display is scheduled on April 5-7 at the
Original Sewing & Quilt Expo in Cleveland, Ohio.
If you go to their site, you can look up each quilt by title to read each artist's statement. I encourage you to do so, they are quite powerful. You will find them under the posts for June and July 2017.
In case you missed my previous posts, here are Part 1, Part 2 and Part 3. I did not post photos of every single quilt, so please use the links above to see the whole thing if you can't make it to the show.
