Eleanore Levie will show us 250 years of American quiltmaking at its most freewheeling, improvisational, bold, and beautiful! She will puncture a few quilt myths, and show you how passionate individuality has been accepted-or not!! This magical history tour will crisscross from antique traditions-with-a-twist to contemporary art quilts, from high Amish handwork to poor unschooled expressions, and include many other historical, hysterical, and stellar examples of this cultural phenomenon. This presentation is sure to encourage traditional-leaning guild members to become a BIT more daring in their own quiltmaking!
