Generations of American women have turned to quilting as a form of expression. They have sewn their hopes, stitched through their sorrows, and pieced together connections and stories through fabric and thread. This May, the Loveland Branch will once again pay tribute to the long-standing family tradition of quilting. More than 70 quilts, including traditional patchwork, embellished pieces, miniatures, quilted apparel, dolls, and other hand- and machine-worked fabric art, will be on display at the branch throughout the month. Also on display are handmade art dolls crafted by members of the Rivercity Dollmakers.
This is the 11th year for the non-juried show, which draws artists from Cincinnati and surrounding counties.
The opening reception is at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 2. It features the music of Wild Carrot and the Roots.
Programs for quilters (and would-be quilters!) will take place from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, May 16. Make a “mug rug” or learn a stained glass quilting technique. There will be a fat quarter swap. Kids can enjoy quilt stories and crafts during the workshops.
