wow, i didn't realize they made a play out the Gee's Bend saga.

Thanks for keeping us updated on all things important to the Sistah quilting community. I watched the Strange Tree video today and was amazed at the story. She is a blessing.

Best, Kyra

I understand that the Kucera Gallery in Pioneer Square, Seattle is having a show of Gee's Bend quilts beginning on February 19. The quilts will be for sale.
