Traditional Quilt Patterns Created by Black Americans-Zoom Program with Fabric Kit

Would you like to know a little more about the traditional quilt patterns created by Black Americans and passed down for generations from the times of slavery and the Underground Railroad?  All ages are invited to join us for this Zoom program-Black History Month:  Quilts with Peopleologie with Linda Janklow on Saturday, February 26 at 2 pm.  Linda will present a slide show of examples of traditional Black American quilt pieces.  Then, create your own no-sew quilt block.  Please register for this program.

Use your own fabric scraps, cardboard or cardstock, scissors and glue to create your quilt piece.  If you do not have any fabric, come to your local SCCLD library and get a kit with fabric and cardstock.  Each library will have a limited supply of kits starting Tuesday, February 22, 2022.  Distribution will be on a first come, first serve basis.

For over 35 years, Linda Janklow of Peopleologie has created programs for all ages and abilities blending humanities, heritage, and cultural craft and folk art.
