“Quilting from a Man’s Perspective – A Trunk Show”
This Lunenburg Historical Society’s March program, presented by Everett Aldrich of Bethlehem, NH, promises to be an engaging time. As past president and member of the NH State Quilters Association, member of the Littleton Quilt Guild, and superintendent of the Lancaster NH Fair craft hall, he brings to this interactive setting, years of experience with and enthusiasm for quilting. Enjoy his historic quilts, as well as some he has created, as he discusses samples from his collection. Because he’s willing to try most anything at least once and is an “adventuresome quilter”, his samples could be different from what you’ve seen before. In the very least, you will experience Everett’s treatment of this subject from an uncommon perspective – that of the male quilter.
