The First Church Embroidery Project
- Date: Sunday, January 22, 2023
- Time: 9:30am–10:15am EST
- Location:Harter Room; Zoom
Learn about our new multigenerational embroidery project inspired by First Church’s Juneteenth service. Our current plan is to embroider the 36 names of persons enslaved by First Church members who are listed in our membership records. The list of names could be expanded to include other Black persons enslaved in Cambridge and connected to First Church whose stories we are learning, such as Tony and Cuba Vassal, ancestors of the Lloyd family. Come meet members of our Embroidery Project Team, learn about the inspiration for the project, as well as the history of fabric art in social movements. Please bring your ideas and creative thinking; this is still very much a work in progress! Then join us at 12:15 p.m. for a multigenerational time of learning how to embroider.
