On Wednesday, November 7, at 7:00 PM, Canton Public Library hosts a program called “To Honor and Comfort: Native Quilting Traditions” by Jo Hansling. The presentation is offered in honor of Native American Heritage Month.


           Quilts play a significant role in Native American heritage.  Hansling’s program explores the origins and design of quilts in Native American society.  She will have various examples of reproduction quilts and handcrafts showing the use of traditional and contemporary Native designs in patterns.    


With a career in quilting that began nearly a decade ago, Hansling has developed programs dealing with quilting in different eras. She also designs and sells soft sculptures of many characters. In 1998 she was invited to the White House to design an ornament for the White House Christmas tree.


The program is free. Registration is requested.
