The Program for the November Guild meeting is about the history of the Gee’s Bend Quilters! This lovely group of ladies live in rural Alabama on what used be the Gees Plantation. Many of them are direct descendants of the slaves that worked there. They have recently been discovered as a well kept secret of art in the making.
