Festival Night: You Call That a Quilt?

with Marianne Fons

Friday, June 8th  |  7:00-9:00pm  |  $25
In this delightful, insightful presentation, Marianne Fons discusses quilt style nomenclature in current, and sometimes controversial, use...including Traditional, Studio/Art, Contemporary, and Modern. Using images of quilts past and present, Marianne celebrates the elements all quilts, and quilters, have in common. 


Doors open at 6:30pm for you to purchase food and drinks and mingle with friends while you enjoy a private viewing of the Quilt Show and listen to live music. The program begins at 7:00pm with prizes, the Quilt Show awards ceremony and Marianne's keynote address.
