WEDNESDAY, November 21st at 7pm: THE QUILTERS

Selections from The Quilters: Women and Domestic Art, an Oral History by Patricia Cooper and Norma Bradley Allen

“You can’t always change things. Sometimes you don’t have no control over the way things go. Hail ruins the crops, or fire burns you out. And then you’re just given so much to work with in a life and you have to do the best you can with what you’ve got. That’s what piecing is. The materials is passed on to you or is all you can afford to buy . . . that’s just what’s given to you. Your fate. But the way you put them together is your business. You can put them in any order you like.”
—Mary White, from the Introduction, First published in 1977
