The Bergen County Quilt and Coverlet Show Committee gathered on April 13, 2021, to toast the publication of Stitched and Woven: Bergen County Quilts and Coverlets, 1800-1976. (You can order it here.)
Committee: Diane Mateo, Kay Yeomans, Joe Suplicki, Peggy Norris, Dacey Latham, Vicky Herbert,
and behind the camera, Marion Brown
Marion won't come out from behind the camera, but her photographs of the quilts and coverlets shine from the pages of the catalog.
Kay and Peggy are the authors of the catalog and Marion the photographer. All of the other committee members made essential contributions in research, organization, proofreading, indexing, and the many other tasks involved.
We made a toast and signed each other's books.
We are at the Schoolhouse Museum, 650 E. Glen Avenue, Ridgewood, NJ 07450. The current exhibit is "A is for Artistry". Pay a visit if you can. Check hours here. You can also buy the catalog at the Museum when during the hours it is open to the public.
And, since most of us are vaccinated, we took off our masks for a minute.
Diane Mateo, Kay Yeomans, Joe Suplicki, Peggy Norris, Dacey Latham, Vicky Herbert (behind the camera, Marion Brown) You can see the smiles on our faces.
