Community Fiber Art Projects


This quilt was created in 2018 with patients (not shown) and staff (shown) at Eastern State Hospital called the "Recovery Quilt." Patients drew images related to recovery, and staff completed blocks. I taught some of the staff to quilt and assembled it. It was quilted by Beth Filko.


This project was undertaken to celebrate ethnic unity in the aftermath of the death of George Floyd (2020). Medical staff of Sentara Regional Medical Center created squares, and I embroidered "United we Stand", another diversity block, and assembled it. It is on permanent display in the lobby of Sentara Regional Medical Center in Williamsburg, Virginia.


I directed a project with local quilters and students with their teachers from six middle schools in Newport News, Virginia, to celebrate Martin Luther King's birthday during the pandemic (9/2021). This is one of the quilts we created, made by students of Crittendon Middle School. This quilt was assembled by Jen Campbell, quilted by Corrine Vance, and bound by Susan Neidlinger.


"Votes for Women" was originally created as a banner for the Library of Virginia's exhibit "We Demand." It has been enhanced, quilted, and is currently showing in  Maryland in a SAQA show juried by Deb Cashatt called "Sew to Speak." (March-April, 2024). It will next travel to the Council for the Arts Gallery in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania  and show from September 6th to October 19th, 2024.
