Speaker: Katy Prescott of Baton Rouge

Description: Katie Prescott of Baton Rouge will give a lecture/trunk show on the quilts of Anna Williams who was perhaps the first African American quilter whose improvisational quilts were publicly recognized as art. Anna cleaned Katie’s mother’s home where they discovered that they had a common bond in quilting. Her mother introduced Anna to Nancy Crow. Soon after, Anna’s original, colorful quilts became collector items world wide.
