Quilting Magic


Select locations in Downtown Flint are going to be transformed September 10 through September 12. The Flint Public Library, Hoffman’s Deco Deli, First Presbyterian Church and Greater Flint Arts Council are the four locations that will feature quilts from many walks of life. Each location will have a unique theme and there will be raffles, demonstrations, quilt classes and much more offered!

The Flint Public Library will feature the Flint African American Quilters Guild, “Be Colorful.” The Flint African American Quilters Guild is celebrating 26 years and will showcase their history with the art of quilting.

Hoffman’s Deco Deli will feature Quilts from the Deaf Community. The quilts displayed at this location will all have a theme related to the Deaf Community in some way.

The First Presbyterian Church on Saginaw Street will feature the 2015 Sacred Threads Exhibit. Forty quilts will be on display that conveys one or more of the following ideas: joy, inspiration, healing, grief, spirituality, peace and brotherhood.

Greater Flint Arts Council will feature, “Brothas Doing Our Thing.” The quilts featured at this location will be created specifically by male quilters.

Make sure to stop by as many locations as you can this weekend at the 20th Flint Festival of Quilts! It is guaranteed that no two quilts will be the same! All four locations are free and open to the public.
