This month we will be combining our Tween Homeschool Hangout, our Teen Homeschool Hangout, and our Homeschool Art Club for a special 2 hour creative extravaganza.
Homeschool Hangout is participating in the 4th Annual March Quilts community art project facilitated by Bib & Tucker Sew-Op, a Birmingham non-profit with the mission of cultivating sewing skills. Each year Bib & Tucker leads participants in the creation of a community made quilt centered around a social theme. No prior quilting skills are required, our teachers will walk homeschoolers through the process. Each homeschooler can use their imagination to design and create a quilt block to be incorporated into this year’s community quilt.
This year's theme will be Environmental Justice and Awareness. We will be celebrating Nature in all her glory: alternate energy sources, access to national parks, native species, food deserts, or recycling. Or you can select something from nature: Your favorite animal, flower, river, or tree. What do you want your block to say? Bib & Tucker Sew-Op have already facilitated the making of 660 quilt blocks. Help them reach their goal of 1,000 blocks this year!
