Quilts of South Africa with Marsha MacDowell and Felicity Khan
Wednesday, September 15, 2021, 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM CDT
Category: Events

From the early use of pieced-together hides to fashion bedcoverings and clothing to individuals today making textile art for wall displays, the production of patchwork in South African has been an important aspect of the country’s material culture history. This presentation will provide an overview of that history, personal stories of the current quilting scene, and an introduction to using the Quilt Index to access the quilt collections in many South African museums and at the Michigan State University Museum.
