$32 Members | $40 Non-Members 

Make a data-driven patchwork quilt block!

Learn basic hand sewing skills to create a piece of fabric art that translates your personal data into fabrics, colors, and shapes, resulting in a design that is uniquely your own.

No sewing experience required; materials will be provided.

Once your block is constructed, instructions and advice for finishing at home will be provided, or you can leave your block to be combined with others into a larger community quilt.

Her award-winning research focuses on the application of design methodologies and epistemologies to librarianship to facilitate the systematic, purposeful creation of library services. She combines her interests in information studies, design, and textile arts to juxtapose hard data and soft textiles, using fabrics and colors to visualize information in a tangible, visceral way. She earned a BA in creative writing from California State University Long Beach, an MLIS from San Jose State University, and a PhD from the University of Washington.
