Event Description:Listen, see, and do during an evening of discovery involving dreams, quilting, and stories.

Fabric, sewing, and quilting are literally interwoven into our history, but rarely considered “important.” But quilts are more than just blankets we sleep and dream under—they are a record of family history, stories, and events. Sometimes they are even an expression of abstract design. This event invites guests to see and learn how early hand-sewing transformed the practical art of quilting into a vibrant and unique art form.

Listen to historic interpreters from Freetown Village as they share tales about the history of African American quilting. Explore quilting displays—and even the Stutz Artist’s Gallery invitational fiber arts exhibition, Make Your Mark: Dream—and listen to a presentation of “The West was Won with Needle and Thread” by Threads of Time Creative Sewing and Retreat Center. Internationally recognized African American historian and folklorist Dr. Carolyn Mazloomi, as well as experts from The Quilters’ Hall of Fame, will also speak. Professional quilters from Quilting by the Stitch will provide a hands-on quilt-block experience that will be assembled into a special Spirit & Place quilt. College Mentors for Kids will display pieced fashions the youth created. Guests are even invited to bring their own quilts for oral appraisal by AQS certified quilt appraiser, Caryl Schuetz.

Walk-ins welcome. RSVPs requested.

Presented by Stutz Artists Association and Quilting by the Stitch.
