Online Lecture by Mary Hogan – “What I’ve Learned from Making Siddi Quilts”
Mary Hogan’s lecture at the Saturday January 16 Quilt Day meeting is titled “What I’ve Learned from Making Siddi Quilts”. The Siddi (pronounced “seedy”) people are people of African descent who have lived in India for generations. They are known for making hand-pieced quilts known as “kawandi” to be used as sleeping mats or covers for their children. They are generally made by groups of women all working together on a single quilt, so it is much more than just functional sewing and becomes a community activity. Non-members may also register for a fee of $10.00.
This is an online event on the Zoom platform. A link will be sent to those who register prior to the event.
