Transcript This is an opportunity to participate in a major exhibition to be shown in conjunction with The Dinner Party in Houston, Texas, March 9 through June 1,1980. The exhibition will consist of a collection of quilted triangular pieces, each honoring an individual woman or a women's group. They will be displayed together to form one large quilt, an impressive symbol of the way women's contributions transcend race, class and national boundaries. At the end of the exhibition, ten of the triangles will be chosen by a jury of craftspeople to be auctioned. All others will be raffled. The proceeds will go to support the educational, artistic, and informational goals of the corporation as well as the permanent housing drive for The Dinner Party and the programs of Through The Flower/North. Join us in this symbolic event. Please help us spread the word; tell others about the International Quilting Bee. DIRECTIONS FOR MAKING AN HONOR QUILT Make a triangular quilted piece, 24 inches on each side, honoring a contemporary or historical woman or women's group from your community, well known or not. To create uniformity of design we ask that you include a 2-inch border within the 24-inch triangle. Place the name, city or state, and country of the woman or group honored in the border as shown in the drawings. The rest of the design is entirely up to you. You can use both traditional and nontraditional techniques. Please finish off the edges and be sure to sign your name(s) on the back of your piece. DOCUMENTATION Because it is important for everyone to know more about women's lives we would like you to share with us biographical information about the woman or group you are honoring. This information will be placed in a book and will be on view at the exhibition. On an 8V2 x 11-inch page please include the following: • the full name of the woman or group honored; • the dates of her life (or group's existence); • her (or the group's) home city, state, and country; • why she (or the group) was chosen; • information about techniques and images used in your Honor Quilt; • name(s) of the person(s) making the Honor Quilt including any distinguishing information about them. The exhibition will be shown from March 9 through June 1, 1980. We will accept Honor Quilts now and throughout the show until May 27. We encourage you to send your piece as soon as possible. All entries must be mailed postage prepaid; no collect charges will be accepted. All entries become the property of Through The Flower. Send your Honor Quilt and the documentation along with a 3x5 card stating your name, address, and the name of the woman or group thatyou have honored to: Calvin Cannon, University of Houston at Clear Lake City, 2700 Bay Area Boulevard, Houston, Texas 77058. RAFFLE TICKETS You can have the chance to win a unique, handcrafted Honor Quilt along with a short biography of the honored woman. Be part of the exchange. The cost of each ticket is only $2. Buy many and increase your chances of winning. All proceeds support the educational, artistic, and informational goals of the corporation as well as the permanent housing drive for The Dinner Party. Give your support. Tickets will be available at the exhibition of The Dinner Party in Houston. THROUGH THE FLOWER/NORTH Through The Flower/North is a chapter of Through The Flower, a non-profit corporation dedicated to social change through art and education. We believe that the most important task today is to ensure that women's experiences, work, and ideas become a lasting part of our culture. Through The Flower/North is offering an eight week intensive progrs.-m in feminist art this summer in San Francisco. This program will include classes combining personal writing, art making, mythology, and the history of women's art, and will have as its focus a large group project. For a brochure writo to: Through The Flower/North, 450 Alabama Street, San Francisco, California 94110. Original concept by Judy Chicago — Project coordinated by Susan Brenner. The International Quitting See is dedicated toThelma Brenner, Dinner Party needleworker, for her generosity and her spirit. We will miss her.
