Women Helping Women: Stitch by Stitch

An opportunity for WCA Members to exhibit with Rubia.

Click the heading to be directed to the WCA Philadelphia Blog for more information.

WCA-Phila has fabric that they can mail you (as supplies last), or you may use your own. (Must be 10"x10")

Please observe the motifs of the Afghan women as seen on the Rubia site and create your response and interpretation of the theme through images of the poppy, the rubia logo, etc. as found on Rubia Website.

We will use fabric artwork embroidered by the Afghan women and we add to it your pieces (quilt style) with squares created by WCA members to create an impressive larger tapestry piece.
