Gee’s Bend Quilting Workshop
Saturday, March 23rd
10am - 3pm at Griff Goods - 719 1st Avenue, Downtown Opelika, Alabama
Learn the art of quilting from Gee's Bend Quilters, Mary Ann and China Pettway. Mary Ann and China will share their unique quilting styles as participants explore the work of their hands and the spirituality of quilting. They will be teaching different piecing, knotting, and quilting techniques alongside their beautiful words, song, and prayer.
Bring a project you have been working on or start a new quilting project. You can choose to piece by hand or by sewing machine. Everyone will be invited to work at their own pace. No previous quilting experience is necessary.
Join us the night before the workshop, Friday, March 22nd, at Perch Jewelry Studio for our Gee’s Bend gallery opening. Enjoy the opportunity to meet Mary Ann and China and to view several pieces hand stitched by their community. Gee’s Bend Quilts will be for sale. Bring your own book for the opportunity to have it signed by Mary Ann and China.
We love to gather people to learn new crafts at our workshops led by various artisans. We have had previous ones with Gees Bend quilters, artist Mary Ann Casey, and seamstress Nadene Mairesse. It is always a delightful time creating and enjoying good conversation over coffee and breakfast. To receive emails about our upcoming workshops, sign up for our newsletter below.
