Event description

Description

Learn about the art of quilting

The Monrovia Historic Preservation Group and the Monrovia Historical Museum are co-sponsoring an event about quilting to be presented by local business Cat’s Quilting Corner, located at 505 S. Myrtle Avenue. The quilting shop’s owner, Cat Knudtson and her mother, Dorine Nieuwenhuijis, will be sharing their many years of experience in the art of making a quilt.

The event is being held by MOHPG in conjunction with the Monrovia Historical Museum, which is also the location of the presentation--742 E. Lemon Ave., Monrovia, CA. It will be held on Sunday, November 19, starting at 2 pm. (The museum is open from 1-4 pm.)

Attendees are encouraged to bring in heirloom quilts to be evaluated. Depending on the quilt, the mother-daughter team may be able to determine the age of the quilt, how it was made, and possibly its value.

The public is invited and refreshments will be served.

Dorine started making quilts with her grandmother during World War II. Because she was too young to quilt, her job at a “quilting bee” was to crawl under the quilting frame and put the needle back up to the top. She started quilting again in the 1970s by taking classes to teach and repair quilts. Part of her experience includes repairing quilts for the Pasadena Museum of History. Dorine retired in 2015 but continues to teach part-time and otherwise stay involved in the quilting business.

Cat opened her Monrovia store in July 2016. The store enables patrons to purchase fabric and other supplies as well as offering quilting classes (often limited to 6 students) in the store itself. Other services offered include custom quilting and repairs.
