COVID Hope Quilt participates in the premiere Quilt show of the year
As the culmination of a whirlwind of travel this summer and fall, selections from the COVID Hope Quilt made an appearance at the International Quilt Show in Houston, at the George R. Brown Convention Center. This year, we undertook an exciting partnership with Bernina USA, in which visitors could try out a Bernina 535 machine at our booth. Avid quilters from around the world enjoyed using this top-of-the-line sewing machine to create panel blocks in tribute to frontline works and those who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are thrilled to share this Facebook Live from the International Quilt Festival in Houston! Our founder Diane Canney chats with Michaelynn Rose, Director of Marketing at BERNINA USA about the HOPE Quilt projects promoting hope and healing.
