Bring balance to your life in the marriage of beauty and function! From selecting fabrics to threading the needle to piecing together your project, the steps you take to create a beautiful quilt will allow you to calm your mind and bring harmony to your life. Master quilter Sandra Detrixhe shares what she's learned through years of creating art out of scraps of cloth: Quilting is a type of meditation. It's both absorbing and mind-freeing. Sandra and several of her colleagues relate stories about the quiet, mindful experience of quilting--choosing fabrics with a purpose in mind, adding pieces with special meaning, and finding a community of quilters. Each chapter includes a suggested activity that will show you how to find peace in the process. You'll soon be able to turn every minute you spend patterning, basting, and binding into enjoyable, mindful moments. With Zen and the Art of Quilting, you'll learn your wonderful, handmade quilt isn't the craft's only reward. The meditative practice of making your lovely new piece is something to be treasured as well.

Appalachian Daughter-35987 Not since the Dust Bowl days of the 30's have so many residents of one area of our great country migrated to another in search of a better way of life. The sturdy ancestors of this group had followed Daniel Boone through the Cumberland Gap a century or more before and were ready to follow their leaders to a new life elsewhere. Appalachian Daughter was written to chronicle the exodus of a number of leading families from the Pine and Black Mountain areas of Eastern Kentucky. Collectively, these mountains are known simply as the "Cumberlands" andform a section of the Appalachian Mountain Range. After the Second World War, the area was so poverty stricken many of the mountaineers left their homes for fertile Southern Indiana farms or went on to cities such as Chicago, Detroit and Cincinnati in search of factory jobs. Coal mining was the only job available in Eastern Kentucky. When the mine operators refused to budge on employee welfare or safety issues, the leaders decided to abandon the only profession they knew and start their lives anew in other places. This story tells of one of those families who migrated and their struggles for acceptance. It attempts to show the impact of this migration on Indiana and other states. It also shows the dismal prospects of those left behind, prospects that would require fifty years to mend. The area would not heal untilit had produced, reared and educated new leaders to take the place of those who left. This story is about my family. I hope you enjoy reading of our exploits.

Black women undertook an energetic and unprecedented engagement with internationalism from the late nineteenth century to the 1970s. In many cases, their work reflected a complex effort to merge internationalism with issues of women's rights and with feminist concerns. To Turn the Whole World Over examines these and other issues with a collection of cutting-edge essays on black women's internationalism in this pivotal era and beyond. Analyzing the contours of gender within black internationalism, scholars examine the range and complexity of black women's global engagements. At the same time, they focus on these women's remarkable experiences in shaping internationalist movements and dialogues. The essays explore the travels and migrations of black women; the internationalist writings of women from Paris to Chicago to Spain; black women advocating for internationalism through art and performance; and the involvement of black women in politics, activism, and global freedom struggles.
