Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild members (from left to right) Marjory Harris of Troy and Eleanor Fanslau and Peggi Yacovissi, both of Wellsboro, are stitching a quilt on Yacovissi's small quilting frame. The public will have that same opportunity before each performance of "Quilters."

Before each of the five performances of Hamilton-Gibson's production of the "Quilters," a play with music that celebrates the pioneer spirit through the creation of a legacy quilt, the public will see a quilting demonstration and be given an opportunity to try their hand at It.
Beginning with the first performance this Friday, Sept. 16, two members of the Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild will be in the lobby at the Deane Center before each show. One will demonstrate how quilting is done. The other, Peggi Yacovissi who plans to be at every performance, will have her small quilting frame with her and encourage interested individuals to sew a few running stitches.

On the face of it, "Quilters" is about Sarah, a pioneer woman making a legacy quilt for her six daughters. In actuality, it weaves pioneer women’s first person histories and stories into a rich mosaic that captures the sweep and beauty, the terror and joy, the harsh challenge and abiding rewards of frontier life.

The show will be in the Coolidge Theatre at the Deane Center for the Performing Arts, 104 Main Street in Wellsboro.

Admission to the 7:30 p.m. performances on Fridays, Sept. 16 and 23 and Saturday, Sept. 24 are $18 for adults and $7 for children and full-time students of any age. For the First Saturday show on Sept. 17, tickets are $12 for adults and free for children and students and for the 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 18 performance are Pay-What-You-Can.
