Hunter’s Home to Host Potholder Quilt Workshop
PARK HILL, Okla. — On Saturday, September 30, at 10 a.m., Hunter’s Home will hold a potholder quilt workshop to teach visitors about the origins of the craft. Participants will make a single square of a potholder quilt to take home. Potholder quilts were popular in the 19th century. They are made with each quilt block individually bound, and the individual pieces are stitched together to form a quilt.
