One Stitch at a Time
In Louisville, young artists master a traditional skill while expressing their artistic side in the Louisville Nimble Thimbles Quilt Club’s annual kids quilt show.
“This is the third year we’ve had the show, and the idea is for the children to just show what they do,” says Nimble Thimbles Chair Marilou Jacob. “They did not have judging at all. They didn’t have to be better than somebody else. It was just for them to put their quilt up and let people see what they’ve done.”
In Lawrenceburg, flute maker and musician Fred Keams is keeping an old tradition alive through his Yellowknife Navajo Flutes. Keams makes each flute by hand, and says it takes approximately a week to create one from start to finish. The results is a unique and beautiful sounding instrument.
