Victorian Crazy Quilt Needle Case – taught by Jean Bragan, Fiber Artist
What’s in a Woman’s Story? — Creating a Crazy Quilt Needle Case
Crazy quilts were all the rage after the Civil War in America. Many of the women used sewing as creative outlet to tell a story about their lives. Participants will think about their own stories and create a Victorian needle case learning crazy quilt era embroidery stitches.
During this six hour workshop, participants will learn and construct a small, crazy quilt block to be used as the cover for a needle case.
