Join a quilt workshop with artist Diane Rode Schneck organized in conjunction with Spring Fling: Quilts from the Collection. The exhibition is a colorful display of master quilts from the museum’s renowned collection, on view from May 14 to June 5. The lively selection includes Amish, stenciled, pieced, and appliquéd quilts.
Learn to make a hand-pieced and quilted potholder in a traditional Amish Roman Stripe design, using an easy quilt-as-you-go technique. No sewing experience necessary!
Diane Rode Schneck has been teaching in and around New York City since 1987, and has taught many classes at the American Folk Art Museum. Her specialties are hand stitching, especially hand appliqué and embroidery, and all kinds of scrap quilts.
