“Stories in Fabric”
“Stories in Fabric” is a performance presentation, illustrated with plentiful pictures in a power point. It features stories from quilters past and present, taken from diaries and other sources. It includes quotes such as "Patchwork! Ah, no! It was memory, imagination, history, biography, joy, sorrow, philosophy, religion, romance, realism, life love and death..." “My whole life is in that quilt… I tremble sometimes when I remember what that quilt knows about me."
I speak about how women want to be remembered, the need to create beauty, and the stories quilters past and present put in their quilts. So I guess it's about...love! The love of quilting and why we do it.
Some feedback from a listener: "I really enjoyed that well-rehearsed, -structured, and -presented performance! I laughed and laughed, and I still can get an emotional tug when I think about various sections. That comes from your theatrical training!"
