I love the Basehor Library– it’s home to my weekly writer’s group, so when my friend Donna Thomas, fellow quilter and author, suggested we do a quilting program for the library I enthusiastically said yes.
It was such fun to dig deep into our sewing treasures to find tools, quilts and publications to illustrate our talk. We thought it would be fun to show library patrons how much quilting has changed over the past 40 years by setting up a display for each decade from the 1970s to the present. And it was fun! If you build it they will come – nearly every seat was filled.
The library staff report that the patrons have really enjoyed seeing the quilts on display and they (the library) wants to keep them! We have politely declined! But in exchange I have convinced some of my local quilting buddies to put their quilts on display at the library. To see a local news article about our event click here.
