2022, represents a new decade of support from Sophie Hayes Foundation for women survivors of modern slavery.

 

To mark this achievement, women survivors of modern slavery from across the country have created and completed a unique set of 3 regional Freedom Quilts. This is a creative collaboration with Liberty Fabrics and the International Slavery Museum Liverpool and assisted by quilting expert Jenni Smith.

This project brings together graduates of Sophie Hayes Foundation programmes in the traditional craft of quilting, each square representing their past and future hopes, and dreams. Created using Liberty’s iconic fabrics, every individual square has been stitched together to form 3 regional quilts that will go on display at the Modern Slavery Museum in Liverpool later in the year.

“The quilt represents everyone’s combined effort to stop this from happening, for everyone to have their freedom and human rights. Survivors, Advocates and Families coming together to thread their own unique stories and voices.

Together we stand & never give up hope.”
