Sewing Stories: Harriet Powers' Journey from Slave to Artist
by Barbara Herkert

Sewing stories tells the story of Harriet Powers, who learned to sew and quilt surrounded by women who sewed on a Georgia plantation. Harriet learned quilting as a young girl and she grew into a skilled artist. After the Civil War she had to selling two "story quilts" to make ends meet. Harriets quilts get large-scale reproductions on the endpapers.

Today two of Harriets quilts hang in the Smithsonian Institution and the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston. Historical details are provded throughout the book on a background of fabric patches with information about the lives of slaves during the Civil War.

Included at the end of the book is a black and white photo of Harriet Powers and biographical information. Harriet's journey from slave to artist is told with expressive language, attention to detail, and illustrations reminiscent of folk art quilts. A wonderful book!
