Hand-Made: Hand-Made Crafternoon with Denyse Schmidt: Sept. 28, 2013.


Join crafty librarian Jessica Pigza of the Rare Book Division and Crafternoon author Maura Madden for this free DIY day. We’ll be joined by artist and quilt designer Denyse Schmidt (author of, most recently, Denyse Schmidt: Modern Quilts, Traditional Inspiration). We’ll have supplies on hand for a little history-inspired stitching project--patchwork coasters inspired by postage stamp quilts--as well as a spread of wonderful books from the Library’s collections for browsing.
