Quits by Sew 'N Sews at Hayward City Hall


I was in Hayward's City Hall and I didn't know that they had a gallery (I learn something new everyday) and they had a cool exhibit of quilts done by a group called Sew 'n Sews:


Sew 'n Sews is an African American Quilt Guild of Oakland that was started in 2000. They are dedicated to the growth  and focus on documenting history, culture and stories of quilters:














This exhibit was amazing to see and craftsmanship of these quilts were superb. I guess I need to check out the Hayward City Hall more often to see what they have in coming months.

  12. A nice exhibition. I was in central Hayward for the first time in several years last summer and it looks like they did a lot in their central civic center. Didn't realize this gallery was there :)

  13. The colors are so vibrant in these quilts! Definitely an inspiration during the dreary winter season of brown (and white!). Lovely!

  17. Patrick,

    I've never seen quilts like these before - very interesting! They are more like artwork instead of something to keep you warm. :) Thanks for sharing & linking with me!
