Peace by Piece Quilt Show to Help Ukrainians
September 30 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 10:00 am, repeating until October 1, 2022
Don’t miss Peace by Piece—a community-wide quilt show to promote awareness and help relieve suffering of Ukrainians displaced and impacted by war.
The special event, which is free to the public, will feature a gallery of handmade quilts and their stories in a self-guided tour on Friday, September 30th and Saturday, October 1st from 10:00am-4:00pm. While there is no charge for admission, donations will be accepted for distribution throughout Ukraine via Samaritan’s Purse, a Boone, NC-based international relief ministry.
Traditionally quilts were made in community, transforming salvageable remnants into beauty and function. A metamorphosis took place, and in the process, the community was also transformed by sharing the purpose of their labor. In spending hours together, they learned to appreciate that each person brings something different to the quilt of life. Everyone was needed, just as each piece of fabric was needed. The finished product was a covering that would provide both physical warmth and the emotional warmth of sharing time and purpose.
Come view beautiful quilts on loan by our Central Baptist Church family! Join us as we piece together our resources to promote peace in our world!
