Calling all Quilters!

As the days get shorter and temperatures start to dip, GSAFE wants to help you get cozy while supporting our LGBTQ+ youth. We are inviting quilters (along with crocheters, knitters, and other crafty artists) to donate to our “Wrap Yourself in a Rainbow” online quilt and craft auction to be held in late November and early December. We appreciate your time, talent, and generosity in advance!

Here’s what you need to know

Theme: “Wrap Yourself in a Rainbow” (Items don’t have to be all rainbow colors, however!)

Size: Lap size and larger. Could be a table runner, wall-hanging, and other styles.

How to donate items: Please complete this quilt auction donation form (PDF or Word ) and return by email or by mail. Please email to make arrangements for mail or drop off. Depending on where you live we might be able to arrange for a pick up.

Deadline: End of October is strongly preferred. Drop us an email at if you’re working on something and need a little longer.

Social Justice Sewing Academy

I am looking with hope to the future and believe that following the lead of our youth will bring progress. Have you heard about Social Justice Sewing Academy? Founded in 2017, the Social Justice Sewing Academy (SJSA) is a youth education program that bridges artistic expression with activism to advocate for social justice. Through a series of hands-on workshops in schools, prisons and community centers across the country, SJSA empowers youth to use textile art as a vehicle for personal transformation and community cohesion and become agents of social change. Many of their young artists make art that explores issues such as gender discrimination, mass incarceration, gun violence and gentrification. The powerful imagery they create in cloth tells their stories, and these quilt blocks are then sent to volunteers around the world to embellish and embroider before being sewn together into quilts to be displayed in museums, galleries and quilt shows across the country. This visual dialogue bridges differences in race, age and socioeconomics and sparks conversations and action in households across the country.

This year the SJS Academy is excited to launch their 2020 Block of the Month Pattern Series! On the first of each month, they share a FREE pattern or two of a finished block that is inspired by art that youth made in SJSA workshops. Each pattern is designed by a unique quilter, adding their own personal style to each pattern while still encompassing the original youth art ideas or theme for the month. At the end of the year, participants will have the chance to piece these 20 blocks together and make a quilt representing a snapshot of youth inspired SJSA artwork!

For more information on the SJSA and how you can participate in their mission please visit their website:

A Note of Thanks

I am so thankful for your continued business. This international health crisis is going to be a rough patch for so many small businesses and that worries me for all of us in that boat.

May we all remain united in the face of adversity and come through this healthy and happy.

Take care my friends!
