The All-America City Quilt Visits Fayetteville

The All-America City Quilt, which has been on tour this year to each 2011 All-America City award winning community, will make its stop in Fayetteville June 4-9. The quilt, which features a Market House patch designed by local artist Martha Sisk, will arrive in Fayetteville for the Monday, June 4, City Council work session.

After spending a day at City Hall and being displayed during the City of Fayetteville’s Citizens Academy graduation, the quilt will travel to each of the partners involved in Fayetteville’s All-America City award application to the National Civic League.

Wednesday, June 6, the quilt will make its rounds with the Cumberland County Schools, featured in the award application for its Reading Rocks! literacy initiative. The quilt will tour the three schools that raised the most money for the Reading Rocks! walk-a-thon in their particular school levels: first stop will be at Eastover-Central Elementary School, then on to Max Abbott Middle School, and finally Cape Fear High School.

“The All-America City quilt represents the spirit of the All-America City Awards – people working together to address our nation’s most pressing challenges,” explained National Civic League President and chief quilter, Gloria Rubio-Cortés. “Think of the fabric of the quilt as something like the fabric of an American community.”  

Fayetteville was awarded the All-America City designation in recognition of its collaboration with community partners on projects that have dramatically impacted the community.
