Gee's Bend Presentation in Dexter - 10/18

Hey gang!

I am planning on attending this presentation in Dexter this Thursday at 7pm.  Tickets can be purchased at the door ($10) or bought in advance ($7) at the Ann Arbor Sewing Center.

A new exhibit that brings to light the bold and dynamic quilts created by a group of women who live in the isolated community of Gee's Bend, Ala., is coming to the Dexter Senior Center on Oct. 18.
Michigan resident Jan Dolland will showcase the quilts and talk about the community of Gee's Bend, an all-black community founded by poor free slaves after the Civil War.
