100 Dresses, Quilt History Program at Wauconda Township (In Person)

Tuesday, October 19, 2021 -
7:00pm to 8:00pm

Inspired by her favorite childhood book, THE HUNDRED DRESSES by Eleanor Estes, Deb Lindahl created 100 quilt squares made of family clothing and fabric scraps and sewed these pieces into the shape of dresses. Each dress represents a story about family history - joys and struggles along the way. These 100 stories were written as essays and assembled into a book as a way to preserve family history in a creative, relatable way.
