Artful Stitches:  A Mosaic of Black Fiber Artists

Artful Stitches: A Mosaic of Black Fiber Artists In-Person

A special event in collaboration with the Martin Luther King, Jr. Assocation of Westfield! 

Join local fiber artist Lisa Shepard Stewart for a trunk show of her own quilts, wall hangings and accessories created with ankara prints, mudcloth, korhogo fabrics, Ghanaian batiks and more. Lisa will also offer an illuminating look at the mosaic of quilt styles by African American artists, moving far beyond the celebrated Gees Bend quilting style that has become synonymous with the “African American quilting” genre. Prepare to enjoy a colorful evening full of information and inspiration!

Lisa Shepard Stewart is a writer and fiber artist, and the owner of Cultured Expressions Sewing Studio in Rahway. She promotes the creative use of African textiles for sewing, quilting, home decor and crafts. After successfully running her business online for 17 years, Lisa opened CE's first studio location in downtown Rahway, NJ in December 2017. Here, she offers a curated selection of fabrics and embellishments, plus events and lots of creative inspiration, whether in person, online, or virtually.
