The Farmersville Quilt Guild is starting a Barn Quilt Trail. To celebrate this new initiative, the guild invited Suzi Parron, author and speaker, to the city for two community events for members.
Parron will speak about Barn Quilts on Tuesday, March 10 at 7 p.m. at the Farmersville Civic Center. The authors interest in quilting history led her on a cross-country adventure which she has documented the Quilt Trails in two books; “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement” and “Following the Barn Quilt Trail.”
The Farmersville Quilt Guild will be donating copies of the books to Rike Memorial Library.
The next day, Wednesday, March 11 at 9 a.m., Parron will lead a barn quilt painting workshop for $45. The workshop, which lasts 4 – 5 hours will be held at the Civic Center.
“At the completion of the class you will have a 2 X 2 quilt square ready for hanging,” reported guild member Elizabeth Andrus. “Suzi’s workshops have added over three thousand quilt blocks to Quilt Trails from California to Massachusetts.”
The event is free but space is limited so contact Andrus at 214-504-6817 to reserve a spot.
