For the women of previous generations, quilting was a matter of necessity, utilizing every scrap of fabric they had, new or used.
For the women of our generations, it is a means of creating functional works of art, creative combinations of fabric, texture, color and pattern.
The ladies of the Tama-Toledo community are invited to Cynthia John's program "Quilted Perspective: Past and Present" to be hosted by Presbyterian Women in the Congregation of First Presbyterian Church, Toledo.
This event will be held in the church's Fellowship Room at 100 W. State Street in Toledo on Sunday, April 21 at 2 p.m. Cynthia's program will be followed by an afternoon tea.
Those wishing to attend are asked to RSVP by calling Connie Pugh at 484-3461 by Tuesday, April 16.
Cynthia is well-known throughout the area for her beautiful quilting. Her skill and knowledge of this art promise to deliver an enjoyable and informative afternoon.
