You can see the exhibit, "Threads that Bind: Works by Pacific Northwest African American Quilters" and at least 25 quilts, including Brenetta Ward's “The Women Before Me” (photo). If you have visited the exhibit, do drop us a note to tell us all about it! Enjoy!

Hi Kyra,

I was able to visit our sistah quilters' fine exhibit last Saturday. There are over 50 fabulous quilts on display in the Tacoma Art Museum, itself a very snazzy setting. I was pleased to see many patrons taking their time and oohing and ahhing over the quilts. Several PNWAAQ guild members were also working upstairs in the resource room. I was particularly struck by an elaborate in progress double-wedding ring quilt. I can't imagine trying one of those. Thanks for posting the information on the exhibit on Black Threads, I would have never known about it otherwise.
