Patches and Pieces Quilt Guild hosts Frank Bennett, CEO of The National Quilt Museum in Paducah, Kentucky, as their guest speaker – January 28, 2019 Cancelled due to weather. This will be rescheduled at a later date.

A direct quote from Frank, “Quilters are unique and extraordinary artists that deserve to have their work experienced by massive audiences. Of the very large number of incredible Quilters only a small percentage are ever honored by having their quilt selected to be hung at the Nat’l Quilt Museum. Through exhibitions, educational programs, and advocacy efforts, the museum ultimately works to introduce everyone to this extraordinary art form.” Frank will happily go in depth sharing all the details about the museum and the quilted treasures within. Bring your questions and love of quilting to this meeting. After his presentation he will also have available the newest addition, 368 page book titled: Collection of the Nat’l Quilt Museum. Cost is $20, and Frank will be available for a book signing.

Location: Ella Sharp Museum of Art and History, 3225 Fourth Street in Jackson, Michigan.

Hours: Opens tat 6pm with meeting starting at 7pm
