Hats Off! to Valerie Paterson whose story "The Thread of Possibility" appears in the anthology Luck and Opportunity as part of the Personal Story Publishing Project. With sewing as part of the fabric of her family, quilting helps her heal from the trauma of a sexual assault many years ago. Her quilt "Hell and Hope" will be displayed at the Visions Art Museum in San Diego, January-April, 2022. Her quilts can be viewed at www.ValeriePaterson.com and www.ABetterWorldExhibition.com. "On the Wings of a Dream" can be viewed at www.Bryerpatch.com. Her writing also appears in the anthologies Exploring and Bearing Up.
