Carolyn Mazloomi of West Chester, Ohio is a strong and effective advocate for African American women quilters, establishing the Women of Quilters Network in 1986. Beginning with only 10 members, the network has expanded to more than 1,800 nationwide and 4,350 members in 23 chapters outside the United States. By bringing these women together, she has fostered recognition of their talents both within and outside of the African American community. Her own quilts beautifully recount African American history and are regularly shown in galleries. She additionally lectures, establishes quilt exhibitions and helps quilt researchers throughout the United States.
