African American Quilt Circle exhibit opens Feb 1

Do join the African American Quilt Circle of Durham, North Carolina on February 1 at the Lyda Moore Merrick Gallery at the Hayti Heritage Center.
"This is the seventh exhibition by the Quilt Circle which holds its monthly meeting at the center for those who have a passion and interest in quilting. This group is made up of dynamic women and men of all ages from across the State of North Carolina. The membership is estimated at over 60 individuals..."
The exhibit is from Feb 1 - April 6, 2008. The Opening Reception is Feb 1 from 6pm - 8pm and is free to the public. There will be light refreshments, entertainment and an opportunity to meet the artists. There is a FABULOUS catalog for this exhibit - so you'll want to go, purchase a catalog, and get it autographed by the quilters themselves! I'll post more about this catalog later in the week! Enjoy! UPDATE: My mistake - the book, which is FABULOUS, is NOT a catalog for the exhibit. It's a book featuring guild members and their quilts. Sorry for the confusion. Best, Kyra

Wish I was going to be in Durham on Feb. 1. Unfortunately, I'm keeping warm in snowy NH then. Sounds like this will be a lovely exhibition.

Mary Emma - I agree with you! Wish I could see this exhibit - the quilts in the catalog are fantastic! You can see the energy these women (and men!) brought to their quilts.

Best, Kyra
