Show 411 - Quilting to Aid Others

Featuring: Elise Roberts / Sandra Dallas

Posts On: May 25, 2009

Quilters are a generous group. To honor that tradition, special guest and author Elise Roberts traces the history of social actions by quilters in the United States. You will learn how to create a quilted banner to spotlight your group's service or fund raising event. Alex and Ricky "pick up the thread" by sharing how today's quilters have responded to recent tragedies. In a related segment, TQS visits the "Home of the Brave Project" in Davenport, IA, part of a nationwide group making quilts for families that have lost service members in war. Finally, our visit with popular novelist Sandra Dallas (The Persian Pickle Dish and The Quilt that Walked to Golden) at the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum is not to be missed!
