Fall Tea Saturday, Sept 24 at noon
Don't wait! Make reservations for tea and savor the best part
of the fall season with apples, cinnamon, pumpkin and sweet pastries.
Doors will open at 11:30am to view the colorfully emotional Sacred Threads
traveling quilt exhibit currently on display. Within each detailed work, artists
tell stories of joy, grief, healing, inspiration, spirituality, peace and brotherhood.
Some explore the fear and isolation many have experienced during the emergence
of COVID-19. Others deal with issues of social justice, such as the creation by Ivy
Sandz from Berkeley, California. She stitched the words of Yazmin Juarez’s testimony
before congress on July 10, 2019, describing the death of her two year old daughter
who died in an ICE detention camp in Texas without medical care. Climate change
issues are addressed in the work of several quilts, and several express loss after
losing a spouse. Other quilts are humorous, poignant, and sometimes hopeful
using vibrant shapes, colors, textures and a variety of techniques to be admired
A brief Spotlight Tour of the exhibit with information on story backgrounds, fabrics
and techniques, will be shared at the end of tea. This is the last tea of 2022 - one not
to be missed! Make reservations to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Cost is $25pp (payable at the door in cash or check) with free parking adjacent to
the building. St.Paul's is located at 428 N. Erie, downtown Toledo and is handicap accessible.
