Michael James at the MAG

The Memorial Art Gallery sponsored a lecture by Michael James, one of the pre-eminent contemporary quiltmakers in this country. The MAG also sponsored a special exhibit of some of his work and hosted a reception for him and the quilters involved in the show and sale of their small quilts.

Beth Brandkamp and Marcia chat with Michael James.

Beth wore her Butterfly Jacket and Marcia her Quilter's Vest for the opening. Both garments were made in Priscilla Kibbee's jacket class this fall and used fabrics that Priscilla brought back with her from her trips to China and Vietnam.
