January 2017 Quilt Day
Doors open at 8:15am, and the meeting begins at 9:15am.
Lecture by Joe Cunningham: MEN AND THE ART OF QUILTMAKING
While quilting has been practiced almost exclusively by women, a few men have crept into the realm from time to time. This lecture tells why, and how, men have occasionally landed on the world of quilts. I will tell my own story and show my own quilts, while also providing some historical insight into this mystery. The lecture is illustrated with my own quilts and and pictures of men and their quilts in my book, “Men and the Art of Quiltmaking.”
This lecture follows the business meeting on Quilt Day.
Following the Quilt Day Meeting, a 30th Anniversary celebration of the Guild’s founding will take place. Join us for coffee and cake!
