The Piecemaker’s Quilt Guild will meet Monday, February 9, at the First United Methodist Church, East Main Street, Frankfort.
The February program will be presented by Linda Aaronson, who will give a talk on “Seminole Patchwork, The Origins of Strip Piecing.” Seminole Indian women originated this method of machine strip piecing to decorate their garments while still living in primitive dwellings in the Everglades. Aaronson, a native Floridian, will discuss the unique history and textile art of the Florida Seminoles in a presentation filled with colorful images.
Members are asked to bring any examples of Seminole patchwork that they have made or own to enhance what should be a very interesting lecture. As always, members of the community are welcome.
Hostesses for February are Phyllis Mueller, Norma Grief, Vreni Aeschlimann and Virginia Emrich.
The Guild’s regular meetings are the second Monday of each month. Hospitality is at 6 p.m., with the business meeting beginning promptly at 6:30 p.m. Guests and new members are always welcome.
