About the event
Join Cathleen Koons Wiggs for an evening trunk show entitled "Mail Order Bride". A costumed actress and quilter, Cathleen stitches together historically accurate happenings with fictional characters to tell the story of each quilt in the trunk show which accompanies the tale.
What happens when a young orphan is engaged to the wrong man? The 1870's are hard, and single men on the West coast want brides, families and futures. Unmarried girls on the East coast are looking to live their dreams or simply to escape nightmares. Find out what happens to Lily in her particular situation.
No stranger to theater, Wiggs began acting in the now defunct Valley Players when she was 12 years old. She continued acting through high school, but took a long break while she served her country. After she retired from the United Sates Marine Corps in 1997, she eventually began acting again as well as writing and directing plays. Researching and writing the stories herself, Wiggs is also the actress in the one-woman show. She was inspired to create the stories after she was asked to do a bed-turning narration for the guild’s (Endless Mountain) 2012 show. She has since written and performed four 45-minute shows – Civil War, Depression Era, Fairy Queen of Quilting, and this year’s Mail Order Bride. Along with the informative and entertaining narrative, Cathleen dazzles the audience with a trunk show of her many beautiful quilts.
