If you are a fabric lover, we have just the thing for you. You see we are having a fabulous Quilt Exhibition July 23-27, 2009. Ebony Stitchers Quilt Guild, in partnership with the National Black Arts Festival, will host a quilt exhibition at the Porter Sanford Art Center and the Woodruff Arts Center. The opening night reception is Thursday July 23 at the Porter Sanford Center; with the exhibition beginning July 23 – July 26 weekend. The feature exhibition is a collection of works authored by Aisha Lumumba, entitled, “Award Winning”. This collection of works celebrates African American Academy Award winners in the areas of motion picture and music. This premier artistic exhibition will also feature traditional and contemporary art quilts and dolls from artists and quilt makers. Structured around a theme of natural community living, there will be several activities such as quilting classes, workshops and lectures for adults and children to participate in throughout the weekend.
Staging any exhibition of this kind can be costly, so we are constantly in need of supporters like you.
Here's my proposition, if you are going to buy fabric anyway (and you probably will), why not help us out while you are shopping? For every dollar you donate to http://www.ebonystitchersquiltguild.org/ you will receive an equal dollar value in a fabric gift certificate. It is as easy as going to the fabric store.
Did I say that right? Make a donation to the Quilt Exhibition and receive a dollar for dollar gift certificate from Intown Quilters.
The fabric certificate will be sent to you from Intown Quilters 1058 Mistletoe Road Decatur, GA 30033 - (404) 634-6924 Open Mon-Sat 10am-6pm; Sun 1pm-6pm www.intownquilters.com
We buy fabric anyway, and lots of it! So this is an opportunity to support two very worthwhile businesses. You can support the Ebony Stitchers Quilt Guild exhibition in DeKalb County and you can also support Intown Quilters. When we reach the $4,000 mark, this opportunity will close. Hurry to www.ebonystitchersquiltguild.org and press donate.
