Art Quilts from Haiti

Patience to Raise the Sun: Art Quilts from Haiti and their Power to Change Women's Lives.

Here is a catalog of art quilts from Haiti based on the recent Bennington Museum exhibit. Curator of Collections Jamie Franklin provides the catalog's essay about Haitian quilts. Nora Nevin writes about the PeaceQuilts project, which features Haitian quilts. The catalog is $19.95 and includes 60 pages.
Blessings to our Sistah Quilters in Haiti.

Hi, Kyra...
So many quilts lost in this devastation. I read the article to see if there was a Haitian museum
with quilt displays. Happily, there are quilts here in states safe in Vermont and other places.

We will need to send some quilts to our brothers and sisters in Haiti, then, lya. :) Will sales of this book help, even if indirectly, the people of Haiti?

Thank you Kyra for posting this which gives those of us who are quilters in the U.S. opportunity to keep our sister quilters in Haiti in our hearts as quilt in the coming days.

Do you know of any groups where artist/crafters can donate an item to benefit the people in Haiti,
Thanks
