Sandy Jacobs: Redwork Revisited
March 11 @ 1:00 pm
The Horry County Museum will host a free program by local quilter Sandy Jacobs on Wednesday, March 11th on redwork in quilting. Redwork is a form of American embroidery, also called art needlework that developed in the 19th century and was particularly popular between 1855 and 1925. Redwork designs are composed of simple stitches and were mainly used to decorate household objects in the 19th and 20th centuries, especially quilts.
Sandy Jacobs’ first quilt was a huge t-shirt quilt made from her daughter’s sorority shirts. She made a few more on her own before she decided to begin taking classes. Jacobs began with traditional piecing and enjoys the challenge of making everything fit properly. She has been teaching beginning quilting and other classes for the last few years at local quilt shops and also for guilds.
The program will begin at 1:00 pm at the Horry County Museum, 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 email@example.com. To view a full list of programs, visit our website at www.horrycountymuseum.org.
