Quilting has historically had many of its roots in families, in school and church groups, in guilds, in clubs, and just in friends who got together to piece, applique and quilt. Most of us have vintage quilts that we say were made by a grandmother or great aunt, but we know that several of their cousins may have helped, or their best friends or neighbors. Maybe we also know how to have fun, and how our craft and art helps us through the hard times.
Tonight we’d like to celebrate that spirit of fun, of sharing fabric, of going on retreats and to classes, of challenges, of teaching children, of helping each other. Thanks go to Claudia, Celeste and Shirley for sharing these with us all.
