Making Good Trouble
My goal as a white queer femme modern quilter is to foster connection and work collectively with fellow quilters to bring justice, diversity, equity, and inclusivity to the industry.
Modern quilting is dominated by cisgender, heterosexual white people and it is only through collective efforts that we can return the histories of quilting to the communities responsible for sustaining it through the generations and allow them to define the future of modern quilting.
As a pattern tester, I strive to use my skills to promote and uplift the work of marginalized creators. As a maker, I work to support mutual aid efforts in my geographic and maker communities.
I recently started the Modern Quilters Collective and through my work there, I hope to take on broader conversations of justice in modern quilting through direct action, writing, and conversation.
