Jerre Reese: Mini Trunk Show
March 5 @ 1:00 pm
The Horry County Museum and the L.W. Paul Living History Farm will host two ‘Mini Trunk Shows’ by local quilter Jerre Reese. Join us to view just a few of her miniature quilts and learn how she makes them. Jerre’s talk will be held at the Horry County Museum (805 Main Street, Conway, SC) on Thursday, March 5th at 1 pm and at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm, (2279 Harris Short Cut Road, Conway, SC) Thursday, March 19th at 1 pm.
For those with questions about an antique quilt in their personal collection, Jerre will be available after each program, starting at 2:30 pm, to give an approximate date and pattern name of the quilt, and offer tips on caring for and storing, or displaying, it.
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. She loves quilting and enjoys sharing the knowledge she’s picked up along the way with others.
Both programs are free to the public. For more information, call 843-915-5320 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
