STITCH Gig Harbor Library exhibit

STITCH just hung more than 50 art quilts at the Gig Harbor Library for our exhibit titled "Not Your Grandmothers' Quilts." It runs into early November (not sure of end date yet), so I hope some of you can stop by for a visit!

We'll also have a free lecture/trunk show/gallery walk on Saturday, Oct. 11, at 1 p.m. at the library. It's titled "Quilts: From Antiques to Art," and it will include some stunning antique quilts as well as early 20th century ones and, of course, art quilts.

We started the morning by attaching labels and sorting through hanging rods. Linda donned a sharp hat and fabulous scarf for this job.

Three wonderful husbands helped and we can't thank them enough!

Sharing space with the Beatles and Jimi Hendrix.
The library staff even pulled out a selection of quilt books and came up with some great flyers for us.

Come visit!
Have a colorful day
