Catamount Arts, St. Johnsbury Chamber of Commerce and the Yarn Bank invite community members of all ages to craft a square that answers the question, “What have you discovered or learned while staying at home during the COVID-19 pandemic, something that brought you joy, inspired you, something you may pursue after life goes back to ‘normal’?” Maybe you learned how to use Zoom, started baking bread, taught yourself Spanish, discovered that you really miss hugs, played a new game, finished a 1000 piece puzzle, or found a new hiking trail. Create a 12”x12” square in any medium you wish, including traditional quilting, embroidery, applique, knitting, crochet, felting, painting, or using natural materials. There is no need for a border, as we will attach your square to a background fabric.

Your pieces can be mailed to or dropped off at Catamount Arts by August 31. Pieces received will be compiled into a cohesive “quilt” and exhibited in a downtown store window in the fall. 

Pieces will then be returned to their creators.

Let us know that you are planning to participate by registering HERE.  We encourage you to post photos of your work in progress on Facebook (tagging Catamount Arts) or Instagram (#COVIDquilt). 

If you have any questions about the project, contact Anne at acampbell@catamountarts.org.
