I Will be Silent No More

with

Bill Stearman

Bill struggled with storytelling as a way to make sense of his life for many years. And then discovered his voice in quilt making. 

Fabrics and carefully placed stitches express joy, anguish, hope, gratitude, and love, providing glimpses into deep and important stories; stories that matter on personal and social levels. 

His quilts make bold statements and provoke thoughtful consideration of a variety of issues. 

“With the help of about 20 of my quilts, I’ll tell their stories... my stories. I doubt that these quilts, and their stories, will remind you of your Grandmother’s quilts." 

Bill will join us from beautiful Picton Ontario where he will share his amazing quilts and their stories.  Bill started quilting in his late 60s and says he is too new to quilt making to store his quilts in a trunk and does what he calls a BackPack Show.  It’s hard to believe so much can be achieved in such a short period of time.

Sewing Together, But Apart
