Thanks so much for showcasing the opening event. I am also lucky to have one quilt of my own and a group quilt, in the exhibition and book!

Sherry Shine's quilt (on the cover) just gives me a huge sense of pride of then and now. Everytime I see it, I feel goosebumps. Congratulations, Bev Kirk, all artists and Dr. Mazloomi.

I have a quilt in this exhibit and have been overwhelmed with pride and humbled by the art works. The cover is wonderful and represents all of us so well.

Happy New Year Kyra,

Thank you for the mention of Dr Mazloomi's upcoming book. I was very fortunate to have my Obama quilt chosen for the book and exhibit. I can't wait to see this published works filled with fiberart masterpieces inspired by the President.
