July 2018 Quilt Day
Doors open at 8:15 am, and the meeting begins at 9:15 am.
Lecture by Beth Donaldson: “Quilting in Detroit in the 1930s”
Did you know that the J.L. Hudson’s store downtown had a quilt show that drew 50,000 visitors and that The Detroit News produced a quilt show each year at the Naval Armory? Beth Donaldson, from the Great Lakes Quilt Center, will discuss the vibrant quilt revival of the 1930s. She’s a highly respected author, teacher, designer and quilt historian. She’ll show quilts from her private collection and debut her latest book, Quilts and Health co-authored by Marsha MacDowell and Clare Luz. Her remarkable work involves preserving Michigan’s quilt history at Michigan State University as the Coordinator for the Michigan Quilt Index.
This lecture follows the business meeting on Quilt Day. Please note, we will not be hosting any workshops this weekend due to the GAAQG Quilt Show.
