Libby Lehman Gets to See the Inspired by Libby Quilts

Watch Libby as she sees for the first time the quilts that were created with her in mind.  "Inspired by Libby" is an exhibition and auction to be held at the Houston International Quilt Festival in November, 2014.  This collection of 30" x 30" quilts will be auctioned off to aid Libby's family with medical bills.

The Power of Quilting
Prepare to be inspired! In 2008, during a dark period in her life, artist Lisa Sipes was encouraged by her mom to give quilting a try - and a passionate new quilter was born.
Now a well-regarded professional longarm artist who loves detailed work, Lisa shares fun ways to add visual and textural interest to a wholecloth quilt with a variety of stitches and colored threads. She also shows how she creates her signature "triple stitch" and alternative ways to finish the edges of your quilt.
We end by visiting with the amazing and inspirational Nola Emerie, who, after suffering a massive stroke at age 52 that paralyzed the right side of her body, decided to take up quilting. You won't want to miss this!

Downton Abbey Costumes at Winterthur Museum

Just a reminder that the "Costumes of Downton Abbey" exhibit at the Winterthur Museum will be ending in January; in fact, on the same day that Season 5 of the popular television series will debuts in America!

Forty historically-inspired costumes from the television show are being displayed. They are supplemented with photographs and vignettes inspired by the fictional program and by real life at Winterthur. You can even get close enough to see the frayed ends of one gown, and where another had to be carefully mended.
