Well all of you know how negligent I have been about keeping up to date. But with the fast approach of a new decade of life I vowed to get busy. So here's what has been happening.
This year I curated Neighborhoods Coming Together: Quilts Around Oakland. The exhibit had over 60 quilts that were presented in several venues including Oakland City Hall, Laney College Library, Joyce Gordon Gallery, Alameda County Administration Building, Women's Cancer Resource Center, Highland Hospital and California Humanities Gallery. Along with the exhibitions, guild members and I taught workshops around the city to community members of all ages. You can see the quilts at the guild website,

This NY Times article also tells about the project. Patti Brown really brought attention to the project with this article. Thanks Patti.
