170+ attend NC exhibit opening

Dianne Caesar, Executive Director at the Delta Arts Center in Winston-Salem, sent me a wonderful email about the opening of the "Sampler & Symmetry" exhibit of African American-made quilts. Dianne shared that more than 170 attended a lecture on quilts and the Underground Railroad by Phyllis Bailey. There was also a very-well attended, free teens quilting workshop with kids from the Winston-Salem Chapter of the Top Teens of America and the New Bethel Baptist Church Senior Girl Scouts, #355, from High Point, NC. Thanks to the Delta Arts Center for teaching a new generation of quilters!
