All-America Quilt Reception, Dedham Guild
On Wednesday Night, The Dedham Guild and the Town of Dedham hosted a reception for the All-America Quilt and honored the quilters, Kathy Bombara and Deb Arscott.
The Quilt square It took approximately 20 hours to make and features all three types of appliqué: hand appliqué, machine appliqué and ironappliqué plus hand embroidery and thread painting.
Bill Keegan gave a talk about Dedham's nomination to the All-America cities award. He highlighted all the work that went in to preparing for the nomination and trip to Kansas City. I think most of knew that there was quite bit a work and fundraising that went into this bid but I didn't appreciate it until this reception.
The reception was very fun and it was lovely to meet the quilters and their families. We are all very proud of their square and that Dedham is included on this wonderful quilt.
The Quilt will be up for two more more days. stop by and see it before it goes on to the next city.
The Dedham Guild would like to thank Vincenzo's, Deli after Dark, and Mocha Java for providing refreshments. All of it was very yummy!
