Don’t miss this birthday gift
RE: Quilt of belonging
I recently went to see the Quilt of Belonging at the Cotton Factory on Sherman Avenue North in Hamilton which is on display until August 15.
This stunning piece of artwork is 120 feet long and is made up of squares created by Canadians to represent the cultural diversity of our country. The bottom row was made by Indigenous peoples from across Canada and the top two rows were created by immigrants to represent their country of origin.
Aside from the intricate handiwork this quilt represents the fabric of this country and what it means to be a Canadian. Celebrate our 150th birthday and see the Quilt of Belonging before it leaves town. Anne van Dyk, Hamilton
