The Beauty of Indiana Folk Arts: Visiting Folk Artists Series–Sisters of the Cloth (quilters)

10:30 am to 04:00 pm
Mathers Museum of World Cultures

“Each one teach one” is the motto of the Sisters of the Cloth, an African-American quilting guild that meets monthly in Fort Wayne. Member Jacquei Seals explains, “We love to quilt, to share, to cook. I love the sisterhood of us.” While some women joined the group as expert quilters, and others as beginners, many strive to maintain their family quilting traditions through the guild. The Sisters of the Cloth will share their love of quilting in demonstrations and narrative stage discussions that will be free and open to the public, and are sponsored by Themester 2016: Beauty, an initiative of the IU College of Arts and Sciences.

Demonstrations: 10:30 to 11:30 a.m., and 2:30 to 4 p.m.
Discussion: 11:45 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.

Cost: Free
