We did it! We raised our entire fundraising goal and more- THANK YOU for all that participated. We are forever grateful for your generosity and kindness. We’re looking forward to making our art look professional and gallery-ready and and can’t wait to share with you the final results! Over the next few months we’ll be getting our pieces ready for an upcoming show- please check back! Thank you to Suzanne for snapping some shots of the workshop at The Bridge Progressive Arts Initiative this past Saturday. Friendly faces old and new came to participate in this collaborative quilt and we can’t wait to see the finished product hanging around town. It was so serendipitous that there was already a quilt show hanging in the space when we arrived- a collaboration between the Culpepper Juvenile Correctional Center and Roy Mitchell Jr., an African American educator with a passion for quilting- read more here . It made for such a cozy setting and great acoustics for blasting tunes from the local radio station. Thanks to all that came out to participate!
Although Innisfree is a great support system in and of itself, I’m looking forward to creating partnerships with other local groups to further foster creative spaces such as the one this past weekend. I’m so grateful to The Bridge for opening up their space to us and would love to collaborate with more groups around town. Be on the lookout for this bright, geometric quilt and come participate should you see more Innisfree hosted events! On the horizon- new fabric patterns (including yet another collaborative quilt project!), a peak at the custom art pieces for our fundraising awards and our new solution for using fabric scraps.
