Patchwork-earth will be presenting our program in January.  Throughout history quilting has been a way to pass down traditions, a fixture of female creative expression, a shroud for civil war soldiers, a cheery outlet during the depression, and now in our current era of excess it can be a way to reuse and recycle.  PWE will remind us of the reasons to be conscious of our footprint, to live minimally and to make our own instead of buying what is mass produced .  Learn ways of quilting for less while keeping “green”.  Upcycled cotton dress shirts is our fabric of choice to create one of a kind quilts.  Where does PWE fit in the history of quilting - it doesn't. The current trend of green craft is finding its niche in history and PWE is putting the green stamp on quilting.  Compare the lack of fabrics during eras of the past to the over abundance we live in. I am first in line to get on the shop hop bus, but what can be recycled is not far from my mind. We will show you how to fit eco friendly quilting into your repertoire . #VEGANQUILTER #EATYOURVEGGIES #ECOQUILTER

If you haven't already turned in your Quilt Show Raffle Quilt tickets please drop off your stubs & money at the January meeting.
