Toni began her interviews with a group of quilters at a Senior Wellness Center in Southeast Washington, DC. When she interviewed Sandy Hassan and me a few weeks ago and expressed an interest in visiting a bee, we invited her to our meeting to see some of our work.
While Toni chatted informally with us about her project, her videographer took shots of our work from different angles in the room.
Toni was impressed with the range of talent in our Bee...
Of course, we had "new" show n tell!

Toni noted that a lot of quilters she has talked with make quilts as gifts or just as a creative outlet. One concern she has is that the talent of quiltmakers as a whole is not as well known as it could be; every group of quilts seen by someone other than the maker is probably just the tip of the iceberg! To help our Bee get more exposure for our work, she'd like to assist us in showcasing our work at one of the local embassies.
That bee it for now, sew forth and sew on til later!
