Another Event April 29

FRESH GROUND COFFEE HOUSEOut of the blue, I received a call inviting me to show my quilts at a local event.  I will be the "featured artist" at the Fresh Ground Coffee House on April 29 in Willow Grove, PA  They have live music (this night it is bluegrass), fresh coffee and homemade pastries.  In addition to my little quilts, I am going to bring some antique quilts and fabrics to illustrate where my inspiration comes from.  I anticipate this to be more of a night to chat about antique textiles and show my work, rather than a retail event.   I am really looking forward to it because I love to talk about antique quilts!

  • Straight from WXPN, and area concerts, Group W also performs as Peanut Butter Jellyfish at Musikfest. We are again pleased to bring to you the best in music and fun at FRESH GROUND Coffee House!
    Featured artist for FRESH GROUND Coffee House: Ann Hermes    "Little Bits of History, Miniature Quilts made from Antique Fabric"
    Bio: "I  find inspiration for my little quilts from the past--sometimes from a glorious antique quilt but just as often from a worn-out quilt fragment.   Originally from Illinois,  I moved to southeastern Pennsylvania and became addicted to collecting antique quilts and textiles.  My current interests are antique doll quilts, doll aprons, quilt blocks and fabrics.   I make my quilts using antique and vintage fabrics from my collection.   I reside in Ambler, Pennsylvania with my husband and wonderful twin boys.   When I am not in my “quilt laboratory” at home designing new quilts, I am in my chemistry lab at work designing new molecules.
