In this edition of Friends@Festival, you’ll find a full account of the 40-year history of Quilt Festival, a story you may be surprised to learn, begins with a political defeat (you’ll have to read HERE to find out just what that means).
Also featured is an interview with quilter Clara Lawrence, who organized the very special exhibit and subsequent auction, “Inspired by Libby”, to honor quilt artist, teacher, and author Libby Lehman and help defray the costs of her medical care. It’s a touching interview, and I encourage you to read and find out how you can help.
