Current Project Update:
Story Quilts


This page will offer ongoing updates of our current project, a series of story quilt workshops with unhoused communities in the Bay Area. We will share documentation from workshops and images of finishing work we do after the workshops are over. Visit regularly to find out about future workshops and follow along with the project as it proceeds.

Our workshops may be shut down, but we have work to do! Here is an embroidery that Amanda finished for Ms Lena from our workshop at the South County Homeless Project. This poem was constructed from the detailed list of image and type specifications Ms Lena offered us.

Our workshops are currently on pause while we shelter in place. We can’t wait until we can all work together and resume the workshops when this is all over! Until then, we will post updates on the work we get up to on our own, emboidering and finishing patches designed in the past workshops.

Our last workshop at the Here/ There camp on the Berkeley-Oakland border, March 8, 2020.
