i am still getting estimates for the lunch and coffee. and i am close to nailing down the rest of our instructors (have 3 committed; need 6) so please continue to pray for our progress. lisa new-freeland from eastern illinois university will be designing and printing quilt history plaques on museum quality paper for display throughout the exhibition. her faculty will translate the pieces into greek for us and pay to ship them over here. God did that:)
we will have as part of our quilt exhibition a category for general quilts, a greek challenge which will include pieces with a greek theme/patterns which will be judged and awarded. our third theme will be centered on the social issue of trafficking. we have several sketches designed by women who have been rescued from a life of trafficking. these sketches are being transformed onto fabric and will be quilted and displayed in an effort to give these women a voice of opposition.
we are sooo excited to see how things continue to progress. we will take the quilt exhibition on tour during the month of october to athens, patra, and katerini where we will also be conducting a mini conference for our girls down there.
here is a sneek peek of one of our quilts just appliqued by karen campbell from the trafficking category. i will need to get it hand quilted now. it is powerful and needs no further words:
