Ann Morton is our featured speaker at our next ZOOM meeting JULY 28, 2020
Hi Modern Quilters,
Life is changing every day. Cancellations are a daily occurrence and not an easy decision to make for the organizers, like the cancellation of our BNMQ Retreat. On the other hand, virtual opportunities are popping up and they are exciting. I’ve taken a Zoom workshop with Carole Lyles Shaw (which I would probably never been able to do) and signed up for lectures and workshops at QuiltCon to be held in February. I am looking forward to the experiences that are sure to overwhelm me with new ideas, techniques, and inspiration. These opportunities may become a regular occurrence or they might just be around for a little while so I’m taking advantage of them now.
It was awesome to see faces again and share quilts and ideas at our ZOOM meeting in June. I hope you enjoyed Lyric’s presentation as much as I did. I’m seeing things a little differently and paying more attention to the things around me.
BNMQG meetings are filling up with great programs in 2020-2021. In fact, we have meetings planned through January, 2021 and they are exciting. This month we’ll be challenged to make a difference with Ann Morton and the Violet Protest. I’m hoping we have even more members join us this month.
Ann Morton and the Violet Protest
Ann will be joining us during our July Zoom meeting. She’ll give you some history of the Violet Protest and give you an opportunity to help with it. You don’t want to miss this presentation!
“Ann Morton is a fiber artist, educator and social practitioner living in Phoenix, Arizona.
Ann’s work exploits traditional fiber techniques as conceptual tools for aesthetic, social communication to examine a society of which we are all a part– as bystanders, participants, victims and perpetrators.
Driven by a desire to make right, the work she does reflects her own handwork, but also orchestrates handwork of interested community members through public interventions that seek to socially engage the hands of many to harness the power of making for social purpose.” – http://www.violetprotest.com/the-artist.html
