Story Quilts Inspired by Family and Faith

Sheryl Sims is an inspirational artist and powerful storyteller who weaves her stories of family and faith into exquisitely designed quilts you will see on display from October 2nd through December 31, 2023, at Woodlawn and Pope-Leighey House.

With each quilt, Sheryl explores her heritage, including her enslaved and freed ancestors, and her connection to Woodlawn and Quaker Meeting. The quilts reveal a deeply personal journey of perseverance, resilience and, above all, hope.

All ticketed guests of Woodlawn & Pope-Leighey House will have the opportunity to experience this exhibit during their visit. Non-ticketed guests are welcome to view the exhibit free of charge (donations encouraged) during business hours: 10:00 AM – 4:00 PM, Friday – Monday.
