Sacred Threads Exhibition- April 5th, 2018 to June 30th, 2018
The Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum is proud to announce that it will host the Sacred Threads Exhibition of Quilts Expressing Life’s Journey: Joy, Inspiration, Healing, Grief, and Peace. In 1999, Sacred Threads Founder, Vikki Pignatelli, gathered a small group of women who felt that their quilts had been misrepresented in quilt shows in the past. Their spirituality had inspired their quilts and quilt shows had been reluctant to feature them. The Sacred Threads exhibit was created to feature these quilts who touch upon both the personal and spiritual levels and is now a national touring exhibit. Museum visitors can glimpse into the spiritual journey of each of these quilters. The exhibit features a MP3 guided tour for each quilt.
Surface Design Workshop

Do you want to learn new creative techniques so you can vary your quilts? Surface design is just one of the many tools you can have in your toolbox of quilting techniques. What is surface design? Surface design is any technique that manipulates or changes the surface of a fabric. This would include: painting, dyeing, printing/stamping, stenciling, applying resists, stitching, embellishing (e.g. adding beads), collaging, etc.
SQTM will host the workshop offered by the West GA Quilters Guild. Sarah Duffey, one of our West GA Quilters Guild members will lead the workshop. Students will experience painting on fabric and watch demonstrations on dyeing fabric. The workshop from 9:00 am-12:00 costs $45. This includes paint, brushes and a yard of prepared for dyeing cotton fabric. You can sign up for the class by calling the museum. Deadline for signing up is Feb. 21.

A memory quilt is a way to cherish the past; whether it is made from clothing belonging to a loved one who has passed, t-shirts from high school or college, or clothes and blankets from the first year of life. These quilts can be made any size. Do you want a small wall hanging with your dad's favorite plaid shirts and khaki pants, a throw size collection of your babies first year of clothes and blankets, or a bed-size quilt with all your race t-shirts? In this class, you will be led in beginning your projects. Sarah Duffey, quilter, who has been making memory quilts and t-shirt quilts for clients for several years will teach this class. Sign up for this class and start collecting those special pieces of clothing or other items you would like to include in your own memory quilt. Cost of the class is $60.
