We invite you to a very special presentation by Philadelphia area quilter Sarah Bond. Sarah is not only an incredible quilter and teacher but is fortunate in that she can look back in her family and see just where her talents came from.
Join us for the very special story about the quilts and quilters in one African American family. Learn about the amazing women and their amazing quilts that continue to inspire Sarah and her quilt art right up to today. These women forged lives and made art before the Civil War, during the turbulent years that followed the war and during the years leading up to the Civil Rights era. Sarah will share some of their quilts, as well as some of her own quilts, directly or indirectly inspired by her foremothers. Reserve your spot for something very special! And...See Sarah's workshop below!
JANE'S QUILT WITH SARAH BOND
Saturday, March 15 - 1-4pm - $35 (includes lunch and pattern!)
We are so taken with the story of Sarah's family and jumped at the chance to work with Sarah to replicate her great, great grandmother, Jane Arthur Bond's wonderful basket quilt. You may choose to use the traditional colors used in the original quilt or give it a new and different look with a different color scheme or a scrappy look using fabrics from your stash. Either way, take a step back in history as we replicate this lovely antique with thoroughly modern technique!
