Quilting expert and author Meg Cox spoke before a roomful of quilting enthusiasts as well as the simply curious about how the art of quilting provided solace and a sense of community during the isolating beginnings of the COVID-19 pandemic. Local quilters shared stunning work and moving personal stories to the attentive audience at The Woodland Parlor.
Durand-Hedden House & Garden then hosted a full house for visitors to view Durand-Hedden's historic and beautifully preserved quilt collection, which is only rarely on display.
Photos from this afternoon-long event are now posted on Durand-Hedden's Facebook page for attendees who would like another look and for those who could not make it to the event.
