Michele LaRue performs "The Bed Quilt"
Thursday, September 3, 2015
"The Bedquilt" is a story that captures the heart of every needle crafter. In a one-woman performance, Michèle will bring to life Dorothy Canfield’s short story. The play is about an elderly New England spinster, invisible in her brother's home. When she conceives “a pattern beyond which no patchwork quilt can go”, her life changes, as over the course of five years she creates a masterpiece which she exhibits to the community at a county fair.

Coming in October, Heidi Lund, with a wearable arts and surface design trunk show.
