ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Needle in the Groove brings together the subversive beauty of quilting with the far-reaching joy of music. It is a patchwork quilt, a CD, and a consciousness-raising tool. Hannah is an activist and a quilter, Sarah is a singer/songwriter, and we have put our vision and skills together for the sake of art, hope, and justice.

The fifteen musicians on this album responded to our call to “contribute a patch about any one of your songs that you feel contributes to social change” and to donate the song to us to include on the CD.

All proceeds will go to the Palestinian girls’ group Flowers Against the Occupation, a group Hannah came to know and love through her solidarity work in the Salfit region of the West Bank with the International Women’s Peace Service and Birthright Unplugged.

Eighteen girls from Flowers Against the Occupation also made quilt patches for Needle in the Groove, and the final track on the CD is of two of the girls from the group singing a beautiful song about the importance of women’s participation in liberation struggles.

The result is what you see here. And now you get to listen to great music and support a good cause at the same time!

For more information about us, this project, or how the quilt can come to you, write to us at info@needleinthegroove.org.

And please visit us to see the quilt and learn more: www.needleinthegroove.org.
