Nov 5th – Second Skin Vintage Event: History and Impact of The AIDS Memorial Quilt

Remember their names…
In June of 1987, a small group of strangers gathered in a San Francisco storefront to document the lives they feared history would neglect. Repurposing the tradition of quilt-making, the AIDS Memorial Quilt reveals the humanity behind the statistics, serves as a visual memorial to the tragic loss of human life, and is a beautiful work of fiber art.

The next meeting of the “I Love Vintage!” Social Club features Deborah Kaeser and Ed Adams. They will speak on the history and impact of the quilt, the heartfelt process of panel making, and the work that’s going into bringing the Quilt to Wilmington.

The “I Love Vintage!” Social Club meets once a month at Second Skin Vintage to learn about various fashion and history topics. Events are always free and open to the public. Enjoy complementary drinks and light food. Shopping discounts during the first hour (Social Hour 5-6pm). The presentation and discussion is from 6-7pm. Please note the quilt will NOT be at the meeting. We hope you can make it!
