PeaceQuilts Partners with Macy's to Help Rebuild Economy and Culture in Earthquake-Devastated Haiti

Just in time for the holidays, you can go to www.macy's.com to order from a collection of beautiful, affordable, artisan-made goods, including a selection of quilted items made by the women of the PeaceQuilts' cooperatives in Haiti. They are being sold as part of Macy's initiative "The Heart of Haiti", designed to put artisans back to work and reinvigorate the Haitian economy. Join us in New York City on Wednesday, October 6 at 5:00 PM for the kick-off event! Meet the artists, including 2 of our quilters - enjoy Haitian food, music and even a dance performance by master quilter Sr. Angela! Heart of Haiti products will soon be in 25 Macy's stores across the country.

 

You can also go online to the PeaceQuilts store at www.haitipeacequilts.org to buy our one-of-a-kind art quilts.
