The Iron Triangle: A SJSA Community Quilt | Workshop Participants, 2019
In August 2018 the Richmond Art Center and Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) partnered to run a workshop at the Latina Center in Richmond, CA. Women from the Latina Center’s leadership program came together to learn how to visualize social justice issues to design fabric squares that express ideas relevant to themselves and their community. The multiple squares were then embroidered, pieced and sewn together to create a quilt that amplifies the impact and energy of the individual messages within it.
These quilt blocks were designed by women from the Latina Center, then mailed out to be embroidered by SJSA volunteers; with the top being pieced by Colleen Haraden and long-arm quilted by Nancy Williams.
