New at the Quilt Show: Redwork Program with Louise Tiemann

TechyRedwork.jpgLouise Tiemann joined the Sackets Harbor Quilt Show for a Sunday afternoon program and talk about Redwork: Ornamental Embroidery. Louise shared an exhibit of patterns, ephemera, tools, threads, fancy work and quilts with us, including this lovely checkerboard-bordered redwork quilt by Margaret Techy.  This comprehensive redwork exhibit was open all day Sunday, with Louise’s informative, engaging program at 2:00 Sunday afternoon at the Sackets Harbor Ballroom.
