As we kick-off a series of community quilting workshops during Target Free Sundays, join quilt and fiber artist Ife Felix in conversation with Faith Ringgold as they explore the history and significance of quilting as a collaborative activity. In celebration of the Kwanzaa principal Kuumba, which means creativity, we invite you to participate in the creation of a community quilt.

In January, artist Ife Felix will lead a series of quilting workshops, during which you can contribute to the quilt. Interested in participating? Here's what to do: - Select a 5x7" fabric swatch that represents you, your family, or your community - Enclose the swatch in a Ziploc bag with an index card listing the following information: •Your name •A phone number and/or email address at which you can be reached •One or two sentences about the fabric swatch you chose, and how it represents your community. You can deliver your fabric submission in person to the Studio Museum's lobby desk Sunday-Wednesday, 10am-6pm, or Thursday-Friday 10am-9pm.

You may also mail your fabric submission to: The Studio Museum in Harlem c/o Education Department 144 W125th Street New York, New York 10027
