AIDS MEMORIAL QUILT PANEL-MAKING WORKSHOPS
You don’t have to be an artist or sewing expert to create a moving personal tribute remembering a life lost to AIDS, but you do have to make a panel in order to add a name to The Quilt. Panels might be created using paint, needlework, iron-on transfers, quilted, handmade appliqués, etc. Any remembrance is appropriate. However, the only way to have a name added to The Quilt is to make a panel. We are offering a free panel-making workshop to assist friends and family realize their desire to memorialize a loved one. You may choose to create a panel privately and just wish to get some ideas or discuss your thoughts. Or, you may wish to make the panel with others in the tradition of an old-fashioned quilting bee, possibly including friends, family, and co-workers. The choice, like virtually everything else involved in making a panel, is completely up to you.
