Louise 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. (see photos below)
More than a dozen quilts from Glenfield, New York’s Sew Crazy Quilt Shop Challenge competition will be on view at the quilt show. The challenge fabric is a panel featuring a rustic cabin scene, with the colors and sights of autumn: fall leaves, quiet cabins, and blue skies. Come see these creative, one-of-a-kind quilt interpretations of the challenge, evocative of the Adirondacks, autumn, lakeside cottages, and the North Country.
The Sackets Harbor Quilt Show welcomes North Country quilter Emelie Cuppernell as our 2018 Quilt Artist. Fifteen of Emelie’s quilts, both full size and miniature, will be exhibited in a retrospective look at her handiwork. Shown left is a detail from one of Emelie’s nature-inspired, dimensional quilts “Snowy Owl.” Emilie will give a talk on her art, the inspirations, and a long view of more than three decades of quilting and textile art.
