Please join us for our September Book Club Meeting! We’ll be discussing Piecing Fabrics – Mending Lives: The History, Philosophy and Ingenuity of Quilters by Cleo Lampos.
Every quilt tells a story. Within its stitches are the dreams, the challenges, the tears, and the joy of the quilter. Binding the fabric is the history of the circumstances that propelled many woman-hours of creation. Cleo Lampos seeks to understand the stories of these textile masterpieces. She looks beyond the initial stunning design to investigate the imagination of the quilter, the cultural issues surrounding the creation, and the innovations needed to complete the project. Join Cleo as she discusses the Art of Gaman, Irish Patchwork, Quilts for the Thin Blue Line, Amish quilters, and the women from Gee’s Bend. Discover the historical and philosophical underpinnings that inspire other movements in stitchery and journey into the hearts, minds, and souls of quilters by reading the accounts of everyday women who discover how life-giving their quilting can be. Be inspired by the women who work with fabrics and the stories they tell.
