Sharing stories


As the quilting sessions progress on the Black Watermen of the Chesapeake quilt, we would like to invite people to share their experiences on the Chesapeake Bay with us. What is your favorite memory about the Bay? Do you have a story of a family member, event, or place that is special to you involving life on the Bay?

We are hoping to collect memories both at the quilting sessions and here on the blog in the comments section that will travel with the quilt in a memory book when the quilt is on tour. Please add your stories below in the comments section.

If you would like to send photos or perhaps feel your story is too long for a comment on the blog, you are also welcome to email us your stories. Send your emails to GKaplan@goci.state.md.us.

One final note, if you would like to add a photo or story to the quilt, but will not be able to attend one of the quilting sessions, you can email the photo and/or story to us and we will consider it for inclusion. All images and stories need to be received by Sunday, November 22, 2009. You can send them to ObamaCommunityQuilt@gmail.com.
