Meet the artists whose work is featured in the book and many of the people who made everything happen: project advisors and supporters, folks from the Rosie the Riveter/WWII Home Front National Historical Park and the Rosie the Riveter Trust, the 2014 Challenge jurors, and the book’s editors, photographer, and designer.

The book is available for $20 at the release party, and will also be available at the Park Visitor Center in Richmond, CA. All proceeds go to support the work and programs of the non-profit Rosie the Riveter Trust.

The WWII Home Front Quilts Project is a collaboration of San Francisco Bay Area quilt enthusiasts, arts organizations, museums and historical associations, The Rosie the Riveter Trust, and National Park Service staff and volunteers. The Project sponsored a challenge for quilts depicting themes from the American WWII Home Front. The WWII Home Front theme was chosen to promote interest in the new NPS Rosie the Riveter/World War II Home Front National Historical Park, located in Richmond, California.

Forty-five quilts were chosen by a jury, and have been exhibited at venues in the Bay Area and beyond. The quilts and their stories can also be seen in our online gallery.
