Under the leadership of the Arts Facet Chair and committee members, local HBCU students meet every other month beginning in September 2021 through March 2022 in this platform (Canvas course and Zoom meetings).
The 10 HBCU students will have access to a sewing machine, purchased by the Crescent City (LA) Chapter. Upon completion of the pillow, the student will be awarded the sewing machine. All participants also receive a packet with all the supplies needed to complete the project including: pre-cut fabric squares, batting, stuffing, needles, scissors, thread, pins, thimble and any other supplies needed to complete the quilted pillowtop.
The final evaluation includes completion of the Canvas course and all on-line assignments. The completed pillow is also a desired outcome.
