The Horry County Museum will host a free program by local quilter Joanne Shropshire on Tuesday, March 3rd at 1 pm. Join us to learn how to create ‘second helping quilts’. Rather than wasting scraps, Joanne will show how she uses her leftover materials from one project to create an entirely new quilt.
Joanne was given a needle and thread at an early age to make her own Barbie clothes. At the age of nine, she learned to use her sewing machine and made her first dress, and so began her love of all things fabric! She received a degree in Fashion Technology and started working as a pattern designer for a women’s sportswear company. After a few years, she started her own business doing custom clothing and alterations.
Joanne is an active member of the Coastal Carolina Quilters, the Cobblestone Quilt Guild and AQS. She teachers quilting at a number of places, some in shops and others at large retreats.
The program will begin at 1:00 pm in the Museum Classroom, located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open 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.
