Mother's Day StoryShare 2019 is an annual initiative of the nonprofit Quilt Alliance to pay tribute to mothers while raising funds for quilt history. In this StoryShare, Bonnie Barbera pays tribute to her mother, Virginia Kelley Syracuse. All proceeds from this fundraiser will support the Quilters' S.O.S. - Save Our Stories oral history project.

Today, May 10, is the last day to submit your story. It's quick and easy.

Please consider honoring your mom (or anyone who has mothered you) with a Mother’s Day StoryShare tribute and a donation to the Quilt Alliance.

1. Contribute $20 or more in the name of your honoree on this secure Donate page.
2. Fill out this form to share your tribute story.
3. Email a photo of your mom (or mother figure) to information@quiltalliance.org with StoryShare in the subject line.

They will notify you when the tribute has been posted. Feel good about letting your mom know how much you care, and for supporting the Quilt Alliance’s mission to document, preserve, and share the rich history of quilts and their makers!

They are accepting submissions now through May 10 and will be sharing these photos and memories on the Quilt Alliance blog and social media from May 6-12 as they are received.
