A show that centered around songs and narration that told stories of the lives of pioneer women that are seldom heard. Great performances by all. Highly recommended.

Description

Quilts are more than just lovely blankets made of scraps. Pioneer women, with no money and few outlets for recreation, banded together to sew and socialize. Using the goods at their disposal, they created a form of folk art and sometimes unwittingly, sometimes knowingly, they chronicled their lives in the squares of their quilts. Quilters is a lively look in words, song, dance, and quilts, at what that uniquely American experience was all about. From the plains of Texas to a Soddy in Nebraska, through blizzards and prairie fires, hard times and good, we watch a very special quilt come together. Join us for an evening that will touch and inspire.
