Quilt Adventure II


We Had Some * FUN * at QUILT ADVENTURE II


On January 31, Joe and I were joined by Barbara Brackman
and
Jane Przybysz
(Director of the San Jose Museum of Quilts and Textiles)

to host 30 enthusiastic participants in a
FULL DAY of Crazy Quilts and more
...

Circa 1900 Crazy with tobacco premiums border

We enjoyed a guided walk through of the Museum's terrific exhibition, "Still Crazy."
After a yummy lunch, we had presentations by Julie, Joe, and Barbara. A Fun and Enlightening Time was Had by ALL...



All of us intently listening to the super-knowledgeable Jane Przybsz (door way) Director of the San Jose Museum of Quilts



Sharing our various (and occasionally differing) thoughts

  2. YES! And thanks!

    Joe and I have had such a great time, and the response has been terrific! So, we have decided to take QUILT ADVENTURE "on the road."

    we have some irons in the fire right now, but HEY! any contacts or suggestions of where to bring QA would be welcome!

    Hope to see you!

  3. It is all true. We had a blast. The thing is, we have had our whole lives to accumulate info on quilts, and the last 30 years to have our ongoing conversation about quilts, so that when we get to have a day of sharing info like this, it's the most fun thing imaginable for us. Plus, I get to make a bunch of cookies for everyone.
