Aurora: An American Experience in Quilt, Community, and Craft Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

A fantastic journey. A remarkable commitment. And a simple faith.

Wrap yourself in a riveting American tale told in beautiful stitches and craft

Master storyteller Jane Kirkpatrick extols the beautiful treasures, unknown to a wider public, rediscovered in the Old Aurora Colony of Oregons lush Willamette Valley. The people and legacy of Aurora, a utopian community founded in the mid-1800s, will stir your imagination, hopes, and dreams; and remind you that every life matters-every daily task, love, aspiration, and endeavor.

~Featuring~

Unique and treasured quilt pattern variations

More than 100 photographs (many never-before published) from 1850 to today

Cherished stories from Aurora descendants

Discoveries of fine crafts from the Colony and private collections

With an introduction by renowned American Artist John Houser

Aurora is about the difference every ordinary life can make-and a beautiful celebration of a time and place in which people expressed their most cherished beliefs through the work of their imagination and hands.

Synopsis:

With hundreds of photographs, many historical and never-before published, this beautiful book celebrates the lives of a community that had lived out its faith in spare yet splendid ways.
