 This is wonderful Barbara--art with heart as is Kate's joyful star sculpture!I often wonder what happened to the small Ukranian village of Loukshevka from which my father's side of the family fleeing pogroms emigrated to America. A cousin tried to find the place in vain--it might have been absorbed into a larger town or destroyed.    I imagine the same kind of fears and hopes motivated them as those of some of our present day immigrants.      
I look forward to seeing the stories at the exhibit and your quilt.Sei gesund!Alana

  The Jewish community center on Bloomfield Ave in West Hartford is having an exhibit June 30 -Aug 30 called The Immigrant: The Immigrant Experience through the eyes of quilters. I have a piece in the show based on my father. As some of you know, he immigrated to Hartford when he was six years old from a small town in Austria. Think Fiddler on the Roof! My small piece is a tribute to him and a thank you to the Hartford community who gave him a chance to succeed. Had that not happened I would never have had the opportunities I had including attending Oxford.
I was hoping to come for the opening but they switched it to June 30 and I have a commitment here in Atlanta. It looks like a good show and might be a fun way to spend  a hot summer day. There are 24 pieces and from all over the world. If anyone does go, please let me know how it isI hope this finds everyone well and enjoying the summer.Barbara
