In 1966, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., visited the Gee’s Bend community in rural Alabama and the Freedom Quilting Bee was established. Create your own brilliant compositions using bountiful squares of fabric scraps to honor Dr. King’s birthday and the inspiring women quilters of Gee’s Bend.

This program takes place indoors in the Kerlin Learning Center located in Wave Hill House. Please note the following important COVID-related information to ensure everyone’s safety: 

  • Approximately nine families will be able to participate at a time, based on the time each family arrives. 
  • If capacity is full when you arrive, we will provide a “come back” card so you will have first entry for the next session. 
  • Each family will receive its own set of materials and cleaning will happen in between seating participants. 
  • All visitors must wear a mask inside. 

Registration not required. Questions? Please email us at or call 718.549.3200 x251.
