How to Do Redwork with Rosie DeLeon McCrady
(Show 1509) Texas quiltmaker, hand embroiderer, businesswoman, and teacher Rosie de Leon-McCrady began collecting redwork while on road trips with her mother-in-law, Kathleen Holland McCrady, an avid quilter and appraiser. Rosie discusses the history of redwork and shares examples of pieces that she has both collected and designed. Alex also shares her favorite Redwork pieces. Rosie covers the tools you'll need, demonstrates the three basic redwork stitches, and reveals how to update your work by introducing "the unexpected" in color and fabric. We also tour the famous San Antonio River Walk and the historic Drury Plaza Hotel with its stunning Art Deco architecture and stained glass details.
