Presented by Deborah Divine

In the early 20th century, Emporia was home to a group of innovative quilters that included Rose Kretsinger, Charlotte Whitehill, and Hannah Haynes Headlee. Today their quilts are housed in art museums and internationally revered. Learn about Kansas quilts from this time period and the unique collaborations that sparked "the Emporia, Kansas phenomenon" and some of the finest quilts of the 20th century.

Workshop requirements: Participants should bring a thimble, needles, thread, fabric, scissors, and straight pins. Please allow 2 hours for this presentation and workshop.
