Historic Palmyra will hold a six-part workshop on the art of crazy quilting and embroidery with Freda Peisley from 6 to 8 p.m. on Tuesdays, March 26-April 30, at the Alling Coverlet Museum, 122 William St., Palmyra.
Participants will learn the techniques of crazy quilting and embroidery, and bring home their own project at the end of the six sessions. Supplies will be provided, but quilters can bring fabric scraps, such as T-shirts, ties or blankets, and embellishments to work into their final product.
Peisley started weaving at age 8. She studied textiles in college, and has been weaving and spinning ever since. She demonstrated and taught weaving, spinning and dyeing with natural dyes at the Genesee Country Museum for 40 years.
As a member of the Weavers’ Guild of Rochester, Peisley participates as a docent at the Alling Coverlet Museum. She performs demonstrations and workshops for Historic Palmyra’s five museums.
Registration costs $80 for all six sessions or $14 per class. Call (315) 597-6981, visit squ.re/2t7p6nT or stop by the museum for information.
