Holiday Party and UFO Program With a “Holiday Twist”
Guest Speaker – Lindsay Roberts
Bring quilts to share that reflect any holiday you celebrate! Did you make or purchase it, inherit or find it at a garage sale! It doesn’t matter – come tell us how the quilt fits into your holiday celebrations! Or, if you don’t have a holiday quilt to share, come share a story about any one of your UFOs! Please contact Carole Rossi at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
As a special feature at our December holiday party, Theatre Arts teacher Lindsay Roberts will be speaking to the guild about the musical Quilters and its connection to PVQA’s “Legacy Quilt”. In 1989 Lindsay’s father (Paul DeMeritt), in his capacity as theater arts director for Bethany University, directed the all women musical, Quilters. That was the first time the PVQA “Legacy Quilt” was used by Lindsay’s family in this special show which was first produced by the Denver Center Theatre Company and had a run on Broadway in 1984. Mr. DeMeritt also directed a production of Quilters in 1995, 1999, 2007. This year, 2017, Mr. DeMeritt is using the Legacy Quilt in his retirement production of Quilters in Yuba City.
Lindsay states: “Each show and usage of the Legacy Quilt was so special and made an indelible mark on the 6-10 women who participated in the show each time! This show truly has made its own history and stories that surround it! Thank you to the Pajaro Valley Quilters Association for allowing us to borrow this amazing Quilt so many times!”
Monday, January 8 – 7 pm
