The Bead Quilt Project has reached its goal!
When we launched the Bead Quilt Project, we could not have imagined the journey ahead. The quilts were carried by countless helping hands for over 7 years and 60,000 miles, in search of the perfect home. We are pleased to announce that this collective effort has been rewarded...
The 9/11 Bead Quilts have been donated to the permanent collection of The National September 11 Memorial and Museum at the World Trade Center site. The quilts arrived in New York in January 2011.
This wonderful achievement would not have been possible without the ongoing support of our amazing contributors. They include:
As a result of so many people coming together, our quilts are now included in an important collection of art and artifacts that will serve to comfort, honor and educate for generations to come.
