The workshop 'Hand Quilting for Beginners' will cover the preparation, the materials needed and different methods and styles of quilting. Practice samples will be available to try, along with some designs taken from one of the TRC's antique quilts. The workshop is given by Beverley Bennett, one of the two curators of the American Quilts exhibition, currently on display at the TRC. No prior experience with quilting is necessary, and materials and tools are provided. The TRC visitors protocol will apply.
