Kansas City Museum Fall Lectures planned
Renovation at the Kansas City Museum hasn't slowed programs being offered for quilters. Several quilt-related events are planned - mark your September calendars now:
Sunday, Sept. 20, 2 p.m.
Handling, Storing and Showing Heritage Quilts
Quilt book editor and writer Deb Rowden will help you learn techniques of caring for and displaying historic quilts in this one hour lecture / demonstration. Rowden is an avid quilt maker and collector and is a well-known author and editor. Her new book Making Memories: Simple Quilts from Cherished Clothing was recently issued by The Kansas City Star Publishing.
Tuesday, Sept 22, 6 p.m. The Quilt Collection
Barbara Brackman, Quilt Historian
Barbara will examine and comment about a quilt from the museum collection in this free lecture. This will be at Union Station's Town Hall.
About the cute kids above: they were participants in an improvisational workshop I taught at the museum a while back. They made the best small quilts!
