PRINCETON — A lecture and trunk show will be given from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Aug. 13 at the Prairie Arts Center by Wanda Stenzel, longtime Princeton resident, and Kate Hall, who grew up in Bureau County and recently returned “home” to live.
Stenzel has been making quilts since the early 1980s and is one of the founding members of Princeton’s Red Covered Bridge Quilt Guild. She has many years experience in teaching quilt classes and this will be your opportunity to see how her work has changed over the years, and where her inspirations come from for her award winning quilts.
Hall, who grew up in Manlius, has been quilting since the late 1980s and made her first quilt while living in Leeds, Maine. She comes from a long line of sewers and quilters. Her great-grandmothers (both Bureau County residents) were quilters and she will show some of their quilts and tell how they influenced her life. She will then share some of her quilts and demonstrate how quilting has allowed her to express her feelings in an art form.
This lecture will lead attendees from the quilts of yesterday to what is happening in the world of quilting today, where inspirations come from for quilt designs, and how the quilt world has officially entered into the world of art.
