A party for Joyce Gross
We enjoyed a reception at the San Jose Museum of Quilts & Textiles in San Jose Thursday night.
It was in honor of Joyce Gross, longtime quilt historian and collector. Pictured above are Kathy Ronsheimer, Merikay Waldvogel and Joyce in her leopard jacket. “It’s not hard to get into collecting,” Joyce told an appreciative crowd (of many quilt collectors in town for the American Quilt Study Group seminar).
On display in the museum gallery were quilts Joyce collected and the one she made (below) for her grandson Dylan. She worked on it from 1974 until 1984.
