Thanks for Turning Out Last Night

We just wanted to take the time to say thanks for showing up to our first workshop last night. We had an awesome opportunity to hear the history of North Lawndale, and see sample quilts put together by Lisa Wilcoxen and Reneau Diallo. Valerie Leonard is learning howto quilt, and shared a project in progress. The next workshop will be Tuesday, September 27, and we will show participants how to navigate the blog and begin to develop quilts. Workshop 1 North Lawndale Stories

Tawanna Calvin, Co-Chairperson of the Historic K-Town Committee, shares the history of North Lawndale.
Mary Visconti, CEO of Better Boys Foundation, observes the story telling.

Reneau Diallo shares a picture of her mother's graduating class from Nash  School.
Lisa Wilcoxen shares one of her quilting samples.
