Internationally known quilter Jane Sassaman will be the speaker at the Aug. 27 meeting of Quilters United in Learning Together. Her program is entitled “Quilting Against the Odds.” The program is free to QUILT members, but non-members will be charged $5 to attend.
Sassaman’s art quilts have been shown in many national and international exhibits, including Quilt National and Contemporary American Quilts, the first major exhibit of American art quilts in England. Her quilt “Willow” was named as one of the 100 best American quilts of the century. She is the author of “The Quilted Garden,” which includes 20 years of her work and exercises for making nature-inspired quilts.
Sassaman will also teach a workshop while in Northwest Arkansas, but all spots have been filled.
QUILT will meet at 7 p.m. Aug. 27 at St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 2898 S. 48th St. in Springdale.
