20141008_100839What: Shibori Peace Quilt Reception
Where: Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh
When: Wed, Oct. 15, 3:30pm. – 5pm.
Admission: Free – check in at the desk and indicate you are attending the reception.

Please join us for the unveiling of our Shibori Peace Quilt, which we will take to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty Review Conference convening in New York in April and give to a Japanese women’s organization to take back to Japan.  The quilt was the result of a week of  Shibori workshops conducted at the Children’s Museum in August to commemorate the 69th anniversary of the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Visitors to the museum tied and then dipped squares of cotton cloth in indigo dye using the traditional Japanese technique of Shibori. The Museum’s Makeshop then sewed the squares into a quilt. Light refreshments will be served.
