GRAHAMSTOWN - CRAFT (article first published : 1999-07-8)

“In loving memory of our dear teacher … Let the music play on … In the garden of love, the fruit of memory never dies … We all love you and your child miss (sic) you.” These are just some of the poignant sentiments embroidered into more than 50 000 panels which make up the AIDS Memorial Quilt.

Currently on show at the 1999 Standard Bank National Arts Festival in Grahamstown at the Recreation Centre, the AIDS Memorial Quilt is an international initiative that has collected this impressive number of panels from over 40 countries. Each quilt panel remembers one or more people who have died of AIDS and the quality of the needlecraft ranges from the most basic to exquisite embroidery and applique work. Through making memorial panels, friends, family members and partners spread their prayers for not repeating the pain and loneliness they have experienced in losing a loved one to the AIDS virus.

For further information on the project phone Lynn Dalrymple on (083) 653-2053 or Lungi Zulu on (083) 284-0991
