North Carolina Museum of Art: Community Threads: A Maker Space

March 9 - July 21

Community Threads is presented in conjunction with Layered Legacies: Quilts from the Museum of Early Southern Decorative Arts at Old Salem.

In this community quilt installation and maker space, visitors are invited to design and create quilt squares of their own design from Friday to Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm. Local artists Aliyah Bonnette, Patrizia Ferreira, and Michelle Wilkie, whose fabric works are on view, will sew the squares together to make one large community artwork.

The room is stocked with 10-by-10-inch quilting squares and smaller colored shapes. Visitors can glue shapes to the quilting squares and leave them for our local artists to use. Bonnette, Ferreira, and Wilkie will sew, embroider, and attach all the squares to make one large community artwork. Visit multiple weekends to watch the community quilt progress. You may see your art incorporated and on the walls of the NCMA!
