Some of the Los Hilos women went to the bay area last weekend to sell quilts at the Marin Farmer's Market. They made many new friends and sold two pieces. Many people came by the farmer's market and Eva said "Hey, welcome!" in English. She tried salty pineapple chicken legs for the first time at Whole Foods and said it was very rich.
They also went to the Women's Cancer Resource Center
and the Judah L. Magnes Museum
and met with the art director Margo, who was a great help. Our show is called "Stitching Their Stories" and is co-sponsored by Art & Remembrance
, whose show will coincide with ours.

We did have a few mishaps along the way. Luzma suddenly became very ill and the van took a three hour detour to the emergency room through rush hour traffic in Berkeley. She was fine and we got home OK.
