Avenue Library Art Quilt Display

Ventura artist Sara Lee will exhibit her beautiful
embellished quilts at Avenue Library.

 

Each of Sara Lee's quilts require 40 to 60 hours of hand work. 

Inspired by books, magazines and even catalogs, Sara Lee devotes 4-5 hours each day to piecing each quilt, quilting, then artfully applying beads, tatted pieces and embroidery.

Sara Lee is a self-taught needlework artist who began by using quilting books from the library. 

These one of a kind quilts will be on display through April 25 at Avenue Library.

We have a new catalog in the works! Why not give it a try?

We have launched a beta version of our new Catalog! We are quite excited about it as it has new and more efficient search capabilities than our Classic Catalog.

As always, you can request an item and log into your account.

It is a work in progress and we encourage your feedback and participation. Try it out and let us know what you think!
