August 15, 2023 Program:

Jean Johnson 

19th Century Revisited Trunk Show 

Jean is one of the 19th Century Patch-work Divas. Inspired by their love of antique quilts, the Texas-based 19th-Century Patch-work Divas is a block exchange group that recreates quilted treasures of the past with 1800s reproduction fabrics. 

The group's co-founders, Betsy Chutchian and Carol Staehle, have assembled a captivating collection of quilts from past block exchanges in their book. The 19th Century Patchwork Divas have displayed their quilts in specials exhibits at the International Quilt Festival in Houston, and then traveled to Chicago, Pittsburgh and Long Beach.
