Joseph Mallard (aka Sunshine Joe) and Janet Hagberg have an uncommon friendship. Janet is white and Joseph is black. They have very different backgrounds and live in different parts of the country. Yet they share a passion for expressing themselves through the art of quilting. Their shared passion has led to an uncommon friendship which has changed them and the people around them. Gather with Joseph and Janet over dinner and hear their stories of quilting as a pathway to relationship that transcends boundaries of race and culture. You will be invited to consider how your passions and hobbies might be a vehicle for building relationships across these same boundaries.
