Participants will design their own crazy quilt square to take home. A popular pastime 200 years ago, crazy quilts were made from spare scraps of fabric and sewn with fancy stitches, sometimes for fun and sometimes to teach children to sew. Special guest artist Risa Puno, whose work is currently displayed on the front lawn of King Manor, will lead the activity and talk about both the historical and modern influences that inspired her to create her sculpture. Weather permitting, we will make our quilts while sitting on Risa's artwork!

Recommended for ages 3 and up, adults also welcome!
