Diversity Quilt – Calling All Needleworkers

by riamn. Average Reading Time: less than a minute.

Rochester Public Library would like to create a collaborative work that will recognize Rochester’s diversity, celebrate the needlework skills that reflect our different cultures and backgrounds, and promote harmony and awareness among our community. Once completed, the quilt will hang in the library as a commemoration of the skills, talent, and heritage found here in our very own city.

Pick up an instruction packet from the Administration Office (2nd floor) during office hours or contact via phone or email:

Gail Harris (507) 328-2341
Purna Gurung (507) 328-2320

Completed quilt blocks and application form must be returned to the library by December 1 for consideration. A panel of judges will select representative samples.

This quilt will be a community art project that shows there is place for all in the fabric of society.
