Martha Washington Visits Little Quilts

We are so excited about the 'Voices of the Past' series from Patchwork Society from Kaye England. This series features Women in History. Our first meeting was on February 22nd with Martha Washington. Due to popular demand she'll be back on Thursday evening, February 28th. There are a few spaces - check the website or call the shop if you want to sign up.

Some of the participants selecting their fabrics for their version of "Martha
Washington", the feature quilt for this session. Particpants also selected kits for a 'make do' pincushion as an additional project. There are a few spaces left in the class for next Thursday evening. Check the website for details.

Martha Washington helps students select their fabrics for the 'make do pincushion' for the additional project in the first meeting of the Patchwork Society. Students received a
history lesson about George and Martha Washington and the entertaining at the White House as the 1st First Family! Refreshments and desserts of the time were enjoyed by all who attended. Check the website for details about "Harriet Taft" - the next featured "Woman in History".
