People & Places Sunday, May 6

Red, White and Green All Over
Traditions & Variations of 19th Century Appliqué
Wednesday, May 9 at 2:30 p.m. in the Community Room of Rowan Public Library, 201 W. Fisher St.
A free public lecture about the history of appliqué quilts.
Vastly popular between the years of 1840 to 1870, red and green appliqué quilts coincided with the textile fruits of the American Industrial Revolution- plentiful and affordable cotton fabrics in solids and calicoes. A new middle class was emerging, whose women could now purchase fabric for dressmaking and quilting.
The speaker, Holly Zemke, has an MA in Textile History, focusing on quilt studies. She will share her passion for this remarkable quilt genre, and the surprises she found in the people who expertly made them.
