Bound by Thread: Sister Fred's Quilt Art

Dr. Frédérique Chevillot, or Sister Fred as many call her, is a self-taught quilt-maker. Piecing together used and worn out clothing, Sister Fred's focus is on mindful creation and instilling new life into old fabrics. Each quilt expresses a feeling, a person, a story, and a time in life. When clothing worn by loved ones gets a second life as a quilt, the quilt becomes a sort of second skin. This exhibit showcases Sister Fred's work.

Free and open to the public. Refreshments will be provided. The exhibit will be open February 1 through March 29, 2019.
