Grandma's Dress Quilt:  From a Bed to a Book*
A little bit of a biography about Grandma's quilt, how it came to be, and what to do with it. What do we do with heirlooms we inherit, grab, pass down. Do we keep them? Pass them on? Display them? Your story and your heirlooms will determine your results.
WAGS members will receive an email invitation with meeting details in June. 
If you are not a WAGS member, you are welcome to attend.  Send an email to programs@wagswhittier.org and an invitation will be sent to you.
