Tania & Madeline & Katherine

United States > > > with Loretta & Marlene in United States

One thing that I wanted to learn about on this VAWAA was how the women of Gee's Bend approach the process of creating a quilt and how I might bring that process into my 3rd grade classroom. I have a lot more insight into that now and I am excited to see what is possible for my third graders next year. 

Loretta and Marlene supported each of us in creating something that was the right level of challenge for us and which reflected our personalities and personal tastes - and was beautiful! We were privileged to meet other community members who shared stories with us as well. Whether sewing on the porch of Lovett's Place and waving at each passing car or sewing on Loretta's porch and watching the water, it was magical!
