Social Justice Sewing Academy

August 20 – December 1, 2019


The Social Justice Sewing Academy brings hands-on workshops to schools and youth organizations, facilitating and inspiring young people to express their concerns, hopes, and ideas through art. The powerful imagery they create in cloth tells their stories. The quilt blocks are then embellished, embroidered, and sewn together by volunteers around the world. The finished quilts on loan to the New England Quilt Museum are genuine, poignant, and powerful.
