story quilts and language lessons

Perhaps tangential to literary translation, but so many people I met at ALTA are language teachers, so it seems relevant! I love this site, Los hilos de la vida, which shows a collection of story quilts made by some women learning English as a Second Language. They tell the story in Spanish and English, and then planned and made their quilts together.

If you're in Northern California you can go to Boonville and check out their show at the local community center. But the blog is just great, with nice photos, and the stories in Spanish and English.
