Jerre Reese: Quilts with a Sense of Humor

March 18 @ 1:00 pm

The Horry County Museum will host a program on Quilts with a Sense of Humor by local quilter Jerre Reese. From holidays to animals, join us for a light-hearted trunk show of amusing quilts made by Jerre. Jerre’s talk will be held at the Horry County Museum (805 Main Street, Conway, SC) on Thursday, March 18th at 1 pm.

Jerre Reese grew up in Detroit, MI and began sewing at around ten years old. She began quilting about 42 years ago and has been doing it ever since. At first she did everything by hand but, as machine work became more acceptable, she switched to machine work.  Also, because she wanted to finish more than two quilts per year!

She has taken classes with many big-name quilt teachers over the years and has tried just about every quilting technique there is. Her quilts have won ribbons in numerous shows and three have been published in various publications. She also had five quilts juried into the prestigious American Quilter’s Society shows. Reese loves quilting and enjoys sharing the knowledge she’s picked up along the way with others.

This program is free to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email hcgmuseum@horrycounty.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
