Fiber Art: Kantha Quilts w/ Jacqui Mehring @ Hirsch Center at Revolution Mill
Jul 12 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
Fiber Art: Kantha Quilts w/ Jacqui Mehring @ Hirsch Center at Revolution Mill | Greensboro | North Carolina | United States

Join Jacqui as we discover the tradition and craft of Eastern quilt making.  Kantha meaning: “patched cloth” refers to both the tradition of producing these unique, quilted blankets (making something useful and beautiful out of fabric, traditionally sari), as well as the craft and stitch itself (a small, straight running stitch in Bengali embroidery).
