The Vale Quilters was organized after the visit by Mary Bedolph and Louisiana Pettway of the famed Gees Bend Quiltmakers of Alabama to New Glasgow NS (2007). The association sponsors talks and workshops on African Nova Scotian quiltmaking traditions and has created popular exhibitions of their quilts including Learning to Fly (2008) and The Secret Codes (2011 etc.).
