Historic Documentary Series: Quilting Women
June 20 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Our June film selection from Appalshop is “Quilting Women” (1976). In addition to the film, museum representatives will also display quilts from SVM’s collections.
From Appalshop’s website: “Quilting Women traces the process of traditional Appalachian quilting, from cutting out and piecing together the patterns to the quilting bee. Quilters comment on the origins of the generations-old patterns, the time and patience required, the satisfaction of accomplishment, the quilts as art, and the companionship offered by women working together over a quilting frame.”
This event is free and open to the public.
