In honor of Black History Month, Ruth Keiser will explain how quilting was used as a vehicle of communication during the Underground Railroad on Wednesday, February 4, 2015, 7:00-9:00PM at Wesley Enhanced Living, 200 Veterans Lane, Doylestown. Using examples to illustrate the various techniques, our speaker will explain the hidden messages found within the needlework. The Doylestown area was an active part of this historical era from 1830 to 1860. New members are welcome – open to the public.
As a follow-up to the program, members may also be interested in visiting the quilt competition and display at the Village Gazebo in Peddler’s Village. The display is open to the general public until March 29 and admission is free.
