This spring, we are looking back 100 years to when BEZ Sisterhood was founded and looking forward to our next century of service. To kick off Sisterhood's centennial celebration, we are spotlighting Judaic Fabric Arts as we invite award winning artist, author, and editor Cathy Perlmutter to talk to us about her Jewish Journey in Quilting and Fabric Arts.
Sisterhood (led by Jody Tzucker) is sewing a Centennial Celebration Quilt. It will contain 100 squares, and each square is available to personalize as your own. Look for details about this fundraiser in your mailbox in June, or simply come to the meeting to learn more.Join Program
