Today's Quilts, Tomorrows Memories
Reasons for Quilting
Let me be your guide on a walk through historical, political, and personal events that have inspired generations of quilters. In my presentation I reflect on quilters work and how they find inspiration to create, to express, and to mark milestones in their lives. The program is full of historical information as well as touching personal stories that many quilters can relate to. I bring along a large collection of quilts (over 50) that will entertain and inspire your members. I hope to inspire you with many reasons to continue to create and enjoy quilting even more than you do now.
