Berene Campbell: Cracks of Light

March 11, 2021

Berene Campbell is a modern quilt designer whose designs are purpose driven, each with its own story of inspiration behind it, often ins response to social justice issues. She uses her medium to process her thought and feelings about what is going on around her and in current events worldwide. She is a big believer of “leaning into discomfort with love”, and with this in mind has coordinated numerous collaborative community projects to try to make the world a kinder and more peaceful place. To quote her words from her website:

“Quilts hold the spirit of their makers and the secrets of their thoughts pondered while stitching. They are beautiful treasures that provide us with warmth & comfort, but they can do more for us if we so choose. Quilts can be posters for our ideas, messengers of our message and uniters of our communities. They hold great power.”
