About the Event

We are thrilled to re-open the Hello Stitch Studio gallery and invite you to join us for the artist's reception of Piecing It Together by Margaret Glendening. Margaret is a long time Hello Stitch community member and artist in residence. We get to see her beautiful quilts regularly and are excited to share them with you!

What Margaret Glendening remembers most about her first sewing project, at age 9, is the green and white fabric she used to make a sundress. Margaret made her first quilt in 1999 for a friend who was having a baby. Then, using the machine that she had gotten as a college graduation present, she used the same fabrics for two more quilts because she just couldn’t resist using up all her scraps.

She has kept making quilts because it is meditative, without being mindless, using parts of her brain she doesn’t get to use in other aspects of her life. Scrappy and make do are still important aspects of Margaret’s aesthetic but now she likes to set a challenge for herself with each project - learning a new technique, figuring out how to create a look without a pattern, and most importantly, adding her aesthetic so her quilts are unique.

*Entry will be limited in order to maintain social distancing, so please be sure to RSVP and then come within your alloted time. Masks will be required in the studio.
