Artists Heidi Parkes and Faith Hale gather in conversation in honor of Mental Health Awareness. They begin by making embroidery doodles to launch a month-long quilt-along using Heidi's Story Quilt Top class. Then, as participants work, Heidi shares about the magic of storytelling and cognitive reframing. With tenderness and thoughtful vulnerabiity, Heidi shares her origin story with quilting and the myriad ways crafting has impacted her mental health. This class was originally filmed live May 5, 2023.
