FROM MAY 4-JULY 2, THE FIBER ARTS CENTER OF THE EASTERN SHORE WILL BE FEATURING THE PATRICIA TUCKER QUILT EXHIBIT: FOR THE LOVE OF QUILTS- THE STORIES BEHIND THE STITCHES.”
Mrs. Tucker is a local quilter who belongs to the Heartland Quilt Guild and has been quilting for over 30 years. She believes that every quilt has its own story. She feels that as much as our Creator leaves His mark on each of us, a quilt-maker’s life and circumstances are often woven within the details of their renderings. She loves the mystery involved in revealing clues and insights found within the stitches and takes great joy in pondering the who’s, what’s, when’s, where’s, how’s and why’s of each maker and piece; many times discovering the extraordinary among the ordinary!
Come join us to enjoy viewing these legacies and pondering the stories behind the stitches! FACES is open Wednesday -Saturday 12:00-4:00 and can be found at 7 N 4th Street Denton, MD. Call 410-829-5136 if you have questions.
