Rekindle Your Creative Fire
Come have fun and see where your creative urge takes you. Expect to be surprised!
Join a small group for a one-day workshop. You will use fabric, your imagination, and our unique process to create your own wall piece. Come with a question, idea or issue you would like to explore. We will guide you through the creation of your journal quilt.
Journal Quilting looks for new ways to explore life’s big questions, beyond “figuring it out.” Usually when we explore these questions we think, we write, or we talk about them in a left-brained, rational, linear way. Journal quilting engages your creativity in a playful and lighthearted, right-brained approach to this exploration.
No sewing or quilting experience required to participate in a journal quilting workshop. Your facilitators are there to support you with the technical stuff. It is more about the process than the product.
At Kellogg Sisters we believe that all creative processes allow us to create a deeper connection to who we are and to generate more awareness of what we have to give to the world.
What topics do Journal Quilters explore?
- How can I have a more joyful life?
- What’s the image of vitality and health for me?
- What does home mean to me?
- How do I connect to the natural world?
- How do I age gracefully?
- What do I want in becoming a new parent?
- What is next for me?
- How do I find meaning in my grief?
- How do I be myself and still be in a relationship?
- What is intimacy?
- How do I find a deeper sense of community?

History of this Work
This work began in Pennsylvania, when Gina Kellogg was working through her grief after the death of her brother, Verne. She began to process her grief using fabric. All of Gina’s art quilts are done using this process, similar to writing in a journal, but using fabric as the medium.
The work was deepened when she began supporting her community members to metabolize their grief around the effects that natural gas extraction was having in their rural area. Read more about that in Trebbe Johnson’s blog post on Fracking Quilts.
