“Water is Life” Quilt Exhibit

My piece “Our Journey” made it’s debut at the U.N. Headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland on March 22, 2016.

This exhibit highlights the importance of water as a precious source of life and its impact on the lives of women and girls around the world.

Here are some interesting facts about water collection according to water.org: http://water.org/water-crisis/women-children-facts/
Women and children spend 125 million hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls often spend up to 6 hours each day collecting water.
Women and girls living without a toilet spend 266 million hours each day finding a place to go.
Women and children bear the primary responsibility for water collection.
In Africa and Asia, women and children walk an average of 3.7 miles a day just to collect water.

New Exhibit!

Two of my pieces, “Her Story” and “Reflecting on the Past,” are being exhibited in Herndon, Virginia with the 2015 Sacred Threads exhibit.

This exhibit focuses on the connection between quilts and their makers and the emotional experiences that may be a source of inspiration to others.
