On October 10th, 19 community members came together at Village Fabric Shop to embroidery quilt squares with the theme of Welcome. Mary Ellen, the Community Coordinator from CWS Greensboro, joined to share about how their organization is working with new Afghan Refugees to the triad. Shannon Downey of Badass Cross Stitch taught new embroiderers how to stitch. Everyone stitched a square with the prompt ‘what does welcome mean to you?’ Over the following week we collected all the squares and stitched them together at Village Fabric Shop. We then handed it over to Carrie Hauser of Lovebug Longarming to quilt it. It came back to Village Fabric Shop to have a binding sewn on and displayed to raise funds for new Afghan community members and as a reminder to welcome people with open arms.
