September 26, 2010 1:00 pm
$15.00 - Two for $20.00
New England Quilt Museum
18 Shattuck St.
Lowell, MA

Come to the New England Quilt Museum this Sunday, September 26 at 1:00 PM for a lecture and exclusive showing of unique clothing made from textiles from around the world presented by Ellen London, founder and creative director of Firefly Designs Africa Asia (www.fireflyafricaasia.com). They’ll be serving mimosas and delicious brunch treats, so bring a friend and make it a day out!

Ellen, who has traveled to and lived in cultures around the globe, will talk about global textiles at the show, bringing with her samples of the fabrics. She tells us: “Personally, I’ve always been intrigued by the possibilities of mixing and joining textures, fabrics and patterns into ‘wearable art.'” Starting out by making jackets for herself, she got so many compliments that she founded Firefly Designs. Her designs are available only through her website and at trunk sales such as the one at the New England Quilt Museum.

Firefly Designs is especially sensitive to women who are difficult to “fit” and/or impress. If you don’t find that perfect piece, custom orders can be placed at the show.

A percentage of proceeds from the show will benefit NEQM. Admission is $15, bring a friend and you both get in for $20! Registration is encouraged – phone 978-452-4207, extension 16.
