teaching tonight

Last year, I was invited by St. Joan of Arc School, Dufferin/Peel Catholic School Board, to lead a group of special needs teenagers in making a community quilt. They named the quilt, WE ARE. The students thought of words that would describe them and those were integrated in the patchwork.

They painted their fabric and sewed with such precision!

This quilt is going to be exhibited in the Students' Gallery, along with work from two italian high schools in Verona, during the international festival Verona Tessile, March 8 to 13.

The Toronto Public Library has hired me again. I will be teaching the same block. There are 18 people registered. FUN!
