Hey, quilters. How are you coping during these crazy times?
At the Choo Choo Quilters July 20 guild meeting, we'll look back in history to the Crazy Quilt era for some perspective. While practicing social distancing, we'll be stitching together a little quilt history, humor and technology at a virtual guild meeting.
|"Crazy Quilts and Mad Women" presentation at the July guild meeting|
Live, via Zoom, join us for a video presentation about "Crazy Quilts and Mad Women" and a discussion about how women at the turn of the 19th century coped with domestic life and the social and economic trends of the time. How did our foremothers use the needle arts to cope and express their thoughts and ideas? Is it much like how we are coping in 2020 with the global pandemic? Let's compare and contrast.
These days, we have digital technology and the web to educate, entertain, inspire and perhaps use as coping mechanisms. For the July guild meeting, please bring and share your recommendations for favorite quilting videos and tutorials, Facebook Live presentations, on-line learning sources, podcasts, etc. that you like to watch or listen to... or have recently discovered during the quarantine.
Sherry and Ginny, Cuddle Quilt Coordinators extraordinaire, will also talk about plans for a virtual Cuddle Quilt workshop.
Watch for the Zoom meeting invitation in your e-mailbox and bring something for virtual Show and Tell.
Be safe and quilt on!
