String Quilts: Past to Present

Saturday, 05 October, 2019 @ 09:00 AM - 03:00 PM | Cost:$25/$29

Join us for a lecture and workshop on the history and techniques of the humble String Quilt. Strips of scrap fabric, clothing, and anything cloth related were sewn together and referred to as 'strings'. Common amongst the thrifty quilter, these were useful and much loved for their warmth and artistry. We will follow the evolution of these String Quilts into the modern quilt movement today. Begin a small project wtih some basic sewing supplies as you design your own project with the basic string block. Listen, learn, and love to stitch? Bring a dish or snack to share at lunchtime and your drink, as we share stories of the quilts and quilters in our lives. Supply list will be sent to each registrant.

Offered by the Academy of Lifelong Learning; taught by Jamie Willis.  

Member price: $25  Non-member: $29
