Last week I facilitated a private bereavement quilt making workshop in Berkeley for a close-knit group, mourning the sudden loss of a dear friend from a car accident. They gathered to remember him and to make three quilts from his clothing to give to his surviving wife and two young children.

It was an abundant day, full of sorrow and joy, and plenty of sewing. None had ever made a quilt before so I got them started with a six-hour Passage Quilting workshop.
With a little experience under their belts they plan to continue to meet on their own to finish the quilts, which will be given to the family at Thanksgiving.
I felt blessed being invited to join them in this sacred work.
