We're going to have Teresa Wong giving a lecture and trunk show this Saturday, November 21st, 1pm-4pm History of Japanese Quilting in our regular room, 210/12 in Payne Education Center, St. Martin's Episcopal Church.
Teresa will present a 45-minute talk on the history of Japanese quilting from the 1950s through today. Our guild will hear the story of how the quilt was imported from America and was quickly adopted and adapted to become a favorite pastime in Japan today. Dozens of photos of stunning contemporary Japanese quilts will be shown, along with beautiful antique American quilts and historical Japanese quilts. (from Teresa's site found here!)
