Haiti Peace Quilts
PeaceQuilts is a 501(c)(3) non-profit economic development organization relieving poverty in Haiti by establishing and supporting independent, member-owned women's sewing cooperatives. Currently we work with nearly 100 women in 6 cooperatives in Lilavois, Port-au-Prince, Damassin, Saut d'Eau and Cité Soleil. PeaceQuilts provides equipment, training, supplies, marketing assistance and educational opportunities.
The women of PeaceQuilts create one-of-a-kind, original art quilts which have been featured in magazines, galleries and museum exhibitions. They also have created a beautiful line of home decorating products, jewelry, bags and other retail products which can be purchased on the Peace Quilts online shop and at retailers in both the United States and Haiti.
Black Mountain Quilts is pleased to be able to offer these unique works of art at our Retail location and online to help support the mission of this wonderful organization and the Haitian families that are improving their lives because of it.
Black Mountain Quilts does not profit from the sale of these items.
