I spent Summer 2012 with a group of women weavers in a small village in the Middle Atlas mountains of Morocco. The summer is documented on this blog, read a little bit about it here.
The weavers were excited to participate in creating small panels to be assembled into a larger piece showcasing their talent. Each woman produced a panel featuring traditional Amazigh design motifs which were to be connected by a quilting guild here in the U.S. for a three-month exhibition at the Human Rights Institute at Kean University in New Jersey.
The tapestry is done! The exhibition kicks off with an opening ceremony on January 30th, which I am going to try my best to attend.
