Uhuru Quilters Guild - Hanging By a Thread Show


On June 28, 2008 I drove to Lake Arbor Elementary School to experience the Uhuru Quilters Guild exhibit "Hanging by a Thread III." WOW! Sistah Quilters are something else. The nearly 200 quilts were well worth any investment in $4 a gallon gas. Here's a photo of the 26 page exhibit catalog which each attendant received.

This year's Uhuru Quilters Guild show was co-chaired by Carol Williams and Lisa Lewis. The committee members included: Cynthia York (Celebration committee), Betty Phillips (Children's Corner), Jennifer S. Morris (Layout), Elsie Houston and Charlene Marshall (Marketplace - yes, I did buy fabric!), Terry Gibbs and Lynora Williams (Program), Deb Sanger (Raffle Quilt - which is gorgeous!), Theresa Brown and Charlene Dean (Refreshments - just what was needed given the heat), and Tammie Morrow (White Glove committee). Mr. David E. Morris taped the event so that one can purchase images of the quilts on DVD. The show was even streamed on the web by Mr. Morris!

These Maryland quilters are on jam! If you have 2 minutes, do view the short video I created of the show. Thanks to Uhuru Quilters Guild coordinator Carol Williams for taking a moment to be interviewed and share the history of the guild's shows. Enjoy! Update: In just a week, nearly 150 have viewed the video! Have you seen it?
