A couple of days ago Jenny Bowker placed an announcement on one of the list I am a member of. Maybe some of you have already heard about it. A major project of her is the work of the Tentmakers of Chareh el Khiamiah. Their art is awsome and needs to be preserved.
On this link you can see some of the quilts which were made by the tentmakers and which were shown in Birmingham: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wHzWRui7Kjk
Here is an example of one of those quilts:
To help preserving their knowledge and their quilts Kim Beamish wants to make a movie of their work. But to be able to do this, money is needed. The amount which has to be raised is US$ 20.000 and to help raising this I am posting this message on my blog as well.
Right now you can pledge money and if Kim reaches his target you will be asked to donate. Check out this link on Pozible to see how it works: http://pozible.com/tentmakers. It would be wonderful if we all could help a bit to make this movie possible.
