four march giveaways!
By Patricia Belyea
This month Okan Arts is giving away Teresa Duryea Wong’s just-released book, American Cotton: Farm to Quilt. There are four giveaways, each valued at $30.
Author Teresa Duryea Wong’s newest book gives American quilters background information on their quilting cottons—from farm to sewing machine—through history and today. Teresa is a great story teller and the book is a delightful read.
You’ll love the story of Mary McElwain’s Quilt Shop in Walworth, Wisconsin—considered the first quilt shop ever—which opened in 1912. Mary made and sold quilts, had others make quilts for her shop, sold kits and everything needed to make a quilt, taught classes, gave radio quilt talks, and was featured in Hobbies Magazine. She was a busy and enterprising lady who hosted guests like Eleanor Roosevelt in her destination shop.
Teresa self-published this 156-page book under her imprint, Third Floor Quilts. That’s another impressive accomplishment!
HOT NEWS Tomorrow (Sat, March 9) Teresa is presenting a lecture at the Texas Quilt Museum about her new book, American Cotton: Farm to Quilt. The event is at 3pm. Free admission to the Museum starts at 2pm. +learn more
