Join the Denver Metro Modern Quilt Guild (DMMQG) for our virtual May meeting featuring special guest speaker: Susan Hudson, a member
of the Kinyaa’a’anii or Towering House clan of the Navajo Nation. She is a Navajo/Diné artist from Sheep Springs, NM who was taught to sew by her mother who was forced to sew at an assimilation boarding school. Hudson’s pictorial quilts honor her ancestors and the proud history of the Navajo people using a crossover style inspired by Ledger art.
