August - Annemarie Yohnk "Quilts Remembered"

Annemarie Yohnk from "Quilts Remembered" was our August speaker. "Redwork in the Beginning" was the lecture. People of all ages have enjoyed Redwork as a pastime from the late 1800s to the late 1930s.  Annemarie gave a fabulous trunk show of these embroidered pieces of art.  We left with a new appreciation of Redwork and hints/tips on what to look for when collecting your own pieces.
You might remember Annemarie Yohnk from "Quilts Remembered". She was here July 2013. You can check out that blog post by clicking here.
