It was fun having Mia Pond from the Oakland Museum of California come out to meet with us at the meeting in November. She came to share information about the Yo-Yo’s and Half Squares show at the museum. It’s a really fun show built around the collection of Eli Leon, a Bay Area quilt collector, curator, and author. Check it out while you still can! (It closes on February 21.)
Mia was also there to feature the East Bay Modern Quilters in the OMCA’s Local Maker feature. It was really wonderful to hear fellow East Bay Modern members share why quilting and our group in particular are so meaningful to them.
