The Rubia Quilt Project Sneak Peek

Women Helping Women, Stitch by Stitch

Presented by Rubia and The Women's Caucus for Art, Philadelphia Chapter

Opening Night : May 2, 2008 @ The City Government Building, Wilmington DE

Quilt assembly began on March 19th. There were 32 participating artists from the United States! We are thrilled at the response to this project and anxiously await the future journey of the Stitch by Stitch piece. Many Thanks to all of our volunteers,Rubia, the WCA-Philadelphia, the National WCA, Afghan Women's Fund, and the support of all of the individual artists.

Objective: To create a larger exposure for Rubia's grassroots project. To emphasize a collective notion of Women's Art or domestic art. To show that beautiful things can come from a war-torn region. To emphasize interconnectedness of all actions.
