Breaking Traditions Sneak Peek

Breaking Traditions is an open call art quilt exhibit that debuts at The American Sewing Expo in Novi, Michigan in September. This year, the exhibit will travel to other venues during 2009. The theme this year, With One Voice, pays tribute to all the good that people do. We are also proud to team up with Virgina Spiegel's Fiberart for a Cause project to help raise money for the American Cancer Society! You can read all the details for participating in this year's exhibit here.

I'm proud to offer you a Sneak Peek of two of the quilts that will be in the exhibit this year:

Safe Haven
Judi Corrado

Artist statement: Safe Haven honors the volunteers and community agencies that provide refuge for women and children of domestic violence. It is important to provide an alternative to these families.

Blue Dog with Red Bone
Paula Page

Artist Statement: My tribute to our four legged friends who give us unconditional love, loyalty and companionship; to the service dogs who improve the life of those they assist and to all the shelter workers who volunteer their time to better the lives of homeless animals.

I hope you will consider joining us for this year's exhibit and honoring those that do good in the world while raising money for the American Cancer Society.

Together we can make a huge difference in the world!!!

Every other Monday between today and August 1, one of the art quilts that has been sent in for Breaking Traditions 2008 will be featured here. Stay tuned for more Sneak Peeks!
