February Evening Makeup--Zoom to the South Pacific with Dana Jones


Dana Jones: The Quilts and Quiltmakers of Caohagan Island Zoom with us to the South Seas to learn the story of a unique culture of quilters, the Pagtinabangay. 

From her website: You’ll be transported to a tiny island — just 13 acres — in the central Philippines as you enjoy images and stories of the colorful quilts and the more than 100 quiltmakers of Caohagan Island. You’ll see photos of more than 50 of these handmade, one-of-a-kind quilts plus be introduced to the unique techniques developed by these quiltmakers whose tools are simply fabric and scissors, needle and thread. I spent more than a month on the island, quilted with the residents, went fabric shopping with them on nearby Cebu Island, and snorkeled the reef that surrounds Caohagan. Those who view the quilts come away smiling, inspired by the creativity of these women and men.

Social 6:30. Lecture will start at 7:00 (No Business meeting or Show and Tell)
