In October 2021, a public broadcasting show called Treasures Inside the Museum filmed a segment about the Westerly Armory. The president of the armory foundation thinks the armory looks best when it is full of quilts! I was asked to represent Ninigret Quilters in an interview.
It was a very emotional weekend for me. We were celebrating the guild’s 40th anniversary, honoring our founding members. We also displayed quilts from three members who had passed away since our last show. And my mother had passed away three months prior. I might be smiling in this photo, but I was sobbing for most of the 15 minute interview. I’m amazed the editor was able to find this much usable footage!
Thankfully, Sharon was nearby for moral support and to supply lipstick. She also video taped the full interview, which I will not be sharing!
