The Afternoon Carriage House Salon Continues!: Quilting in America
The Carriage House Salon continues on Sunday, March 26th, 2023 at 4 PM celebrating Women's History Month with a lecture on quilt making in America. Some of us have romanticized a magical world of womens creation, where the immersion in this creativity would act as a bridge or bond, bringing together women across the usual divides of class and race. While this may be true there are many practical reason quilt making is so much a part of our history.
Pardee Family Museum Board Member Gloria Taylor will talk about her own family quilts and we will learn about the quilts in the museum belonging to the Pardee family (see Crazy Quilt photo). She will introduce Marsha Carter, renowned artist, poet and quilt maker who will speak and show her modernize method of quilting; using the fusion of fabric, often featuring asymmetry with unusual block placement and off-center motifs. Marsha will bring her quilt depicting Delilah Beasley (see photo), whose history will be shared.
People are encouraged to bring photos or quilts during this event for a "sharing time".
Depending on the weather, the event might be held outdoors or in the Carriage House with social distancing. The garden is a lovely place to visit this time of year with flowering plants and shade from our grand old trees. After the music we will have a champagne reception with light refreshments including savories, sweets and best of all: socializing!
Covid protocols will be followed with proof of vaccination required and a safe place to gather.
