Welcome Blanket Story TIme
Welcoming immigrant families
on August 30th at 10AM & 3PM!
Here’s a question:
The proposed border wall between the United States and Mexico is almost 2000 miles long. Imagine if the massive distance of this wall was re-conceptualized and re-contextualized not to divide, but to include. Instead of wall, a concrete line, to keep people out, what if lines of yarn became 3,500,640 yards of blankets to welcome people in?
A welcome blanket is traditionally created to lovingly mark the arrival of a new person into the world. In the Welcome Blanket project, each handmade blanket is a physical manifestation of this celebration of new refugees and other immigrants: “Welcome to the United States and your new life here! We are so glad you have arrived.”
Join us for stories about immigration and help us make a quilt for the Welcome Blanket Project! All ages welcome, no skills required (Kids will draw pictures on a quilt), just a caring heart!
