Historic Palmyra is excited to announce a special 6-part workshop on the art of crazy quilting and embroidery with Freda Peisley, to begin on March 26th. This workshop will take place at the Alling Coverlet Museum, 122 William St., Palmyra on the following Tuesdays from 6-8 pm: March 26, April 2, April 9, April 16, April 23, and April 30. Participants will learn the techniques of crazy quilting and embroidery and bring home their own project at the end of the six sessions! Supplies are provided but participants may bring their own meaningful fabric scraps, such as t-shirts, ties, or blankets, and embellishments to work into their final product. This is a great opportunity to make a memory!
The six-session class costs $80 for all of the classes or $14 per class. Interested individuals can register in-person at the museum office (132 Market St., Palmyra), by phone (315-597-6981), or through the Historic Palmyra online store (https://squareup.com/store/historic-palmyra-inc). Please note that this class will only run if at least 6 people are registered.
Freda Peisley started weaving at age 8. She studied textiles in college and has been weaving and spinning ever since. She demonstrated and taught children and adults weaving, spinning, and dyeing with natural dyes at the Genesee Country Museum for 40 years. As a member of the Weavers’ Guild of Rochester, Freda participates as a docent at Historic Palmyra’s Alling Coverlet Museum. Beyond being a knowledgeable and frequent docent, she has also performed demonstrations and workshops for the museums including, most recently, an indigo dyeing demonstration and a crazy quilt pillow workshop.
