Kathryn Jenson White: My Abecedary of Quilts
May 8, 2019 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Kathryn will bring a PowerPoint presentation and many of the more than 50 quilts that she’s made with alphabets and/or words on them.
“I realized early on in my quilting experience that I didn’t want just to make fiber art that was just beautiful; I wanted to make fiber art that was beautiful (at least to me!) and that said something meaningful to me or involved word play or referenced something I cared about or had messages tucked into them. I had always been an abecedarian: I collected alphabet samplers, admired all kinds of calligraphic art and enjoyed graffiti. Also, I loved the word/idea of TEXTiles, which is what I started thinking of my quilts as at that point in the mid-’90s.”
