“Patchwork” represents the stories and lives of women living in rural Bamberg, South Carolina during a time period of approximately 1939-1959. These God-centered women created an atmosphere that allowed the participants to help their families. Quilting was their point of focus; however this activity provided an opportunity to share their challenging stories.
Patchwork encourages us to find a way to bridge the gap between generations by sharing helpful information through conversation. Both groups the youth and the elder must be open to a two-way conversation. Being the elder does not mean you have a monopoly on teaching, the youth also have something to say. “Patchwork” says we should have the conversation.
