Parron visit planned for 2016

Suzi Parron, author of “Barn Quilts and the American Quilt Trail Movement,” will return to Ashtabula County May 10, 2016, to present a free program about the American Barn Quilt Trail Movement.

The Ashtabula County Barn Quilt Trail and Ashtabula Friendly Quilters Guild will sponsor the event, to be held at First Church of the Nazarene, 1820 South Ridge Road, Ashtabula. The program will get under way at 6:30 p.m.

The barn quilt trail movement was born in Adams County, in 2001. The movement has spread to 44 states and more than 4,000 barn quilts celebrate America’s rich quilting heritage. There are more than 60 barn quilts on Ashtabula County’s trail.

Parron has written a second book on the barn quilt trail and will discuss that book during her presentation on May 10. Her website is a resource for quilters and travelers to find trails and information.
