The regular monthly in-person meetings of the Old Capitol Quilters Guild have been suspended until further notice in accordance with guidance from the Center for Disease Control and state and local officials designed to lessen the impact of the COVID-19 virus. HOWEVER, we are continuing to meet online via Zoom and we are delighted that our speakers are creatively adapting their presentations to this new format.

Doris Montag, a local curator and storyteller, will present a video display of artifacts with a narrated history of thread, pins, and needles, sewing machines and accessories. It is based on her exhibit, "Sentiments of Sewing," and features unique sewing kits, pin cushions, and more providing a delightful and educational tour through the evolution of sewing. This topic is one of many in a series that Doris calls "The History of Ordinary Things."
