Sisters of the Cloth is a group that meets at the Adel Library on 3 Saturday mornings in the last half of the year to learn more about vintage quilts and the women who made them. We also enjoy lots of show and share quilts, mostly vintage.
Our meetings also include lots of hand outs, patterns, supplies to do hand stitching (optional) while listening to the program, prizes, refreshments, and speakers.
Our dates for 2016 (10 am to noon) are:
- July 16
- September 17
- November 19
Here is what we have lined up for the 2016 series of classes:
- July - Suzi Parron, author of "Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement". Her presentation is both informative and entertaining as Suzi explores the way in which our quilting heritage takes on new meaning.
- September - Jeanette Harms will bring several quilts made in the 1800s and tell the story of how she found them in her grandmother's attic.
- November - Helen Lewis from the Iowa Speaker's Bureau will come dressed in period clothing and tell the story of Jane Addams, born in 1860, a pioneer, American settlement activist/reformer, social worker, public philosopher, author and leader in women's suffrage movement and world peace.
Register now for all three classes, just $35. Seating is limited so don't tarry. Even if you miss a class, the value is still there in the hand outs, patterns, supplies and fellowship.
