Sign Up Now! Hands-On Story-Quilting Workshop on June 14
Documentary Story-Quilter Joan Gaither, whose work has been shown in numerous museums across Maryland and nationally, is offering a second Hands-On Workshop on June 14, on how to get started with Story-Quilting!
Read more about Joan in this article from the February 15th issue of Bay Weekly.
According to article author Prue Hoppin: “No experience required is the message at Gaither’s quilt-making workshops. People come with words, photographs and mementos. She brings ink jet printers, scissors, markers, boxes of embellishments and inspires her quilters to capture memories and stories on fabric. Sewing is done with large needles and simple stitches.”
More articles and videos about Dr. Gaither’s work can be found on her Facebook page.
Four Rivers Heritage Area is one of the sponsoring organizations. The workshop will be held at the Wiley H. Bates Legacy Center, 1101 Smithville Street, Annapolis. If you have not visited the Center before, you will want to enter through the doorway at the top of the ramp on the right-hand side of the front courtyard (on Smithville Street). If you cannot find us, call 410-627-6018, thanks! The session has a $15.00 cost to cover materials. Register below using the Eventbrite link, or RSVP to [email protected] and pay at the door. We look forward to seeing you then!
