We want everyone who has a hand in this project to be recognized. Although each of the four verses in my section is dedicated to one of the Biblical matriarchs – Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah – I may also wish to honour up to four other people. I will relay their names to the organizers. Please tell us whom you are honouring and – if you wish – a bit about that person. I would like some hands-on assistance getting started. I'm interested in being part of a group that will meet several times to stitch together. We'll try our best to facilitate these requests. Hopefully coaches and groups will organize themselves. Like many textile pursuits this project and its participants may find camaraderie and even enduring friendships by stitching with others.
