Have you ever looked at a beautiful Civil War quilt and wondered what life might have been like for a woman living back then? Why did she choose those fabrics and how did she find the time to work on it? Completing a quilt can be overwhelming for a lot of us. Just starting one is daunting. We can help with that. This project was created for the beginner. No sewing experience or sewing machine is required. At the first session, participants will receive a kit ($5) of pre-cut fabric in their choice of colors – reds, blues, greens or browns – plus a needle and thread. Linda Lipscomb will conduct a series of 3 workshops - getting started (8/11), assembly (9/8) and finishing (10/13) - to help you through each step. When you are finished, you will have a beautiful quilt square, hand-made by you, to keep or give as a gift. Cost: free for members -$2.50 each for non-members. Location- Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox (159 Horseshoe Road, Appomattox, VA 24522).
Please note that you must attend session 1 "Getting Started" on August 11th in order to get your supplies and proceed through this session and the third session "Finishing" on October 13th.
This event is sold out.
