This Monday we have a special treat!
Our feature book is "Hobo Quilts"
by Debra G. Henninger
I first heard about this book from a friend and work colleague.
She had seen the book while at Quilt Market in Minnesota.
I was so intrigued and charmed by the description she
gave of the book, I couldn't wait until it came to the shop.
Much like the quilt books about the Underground Railroad,
This book focuses on the secret clues & symbols of the
Depression Era American Hobo who set out riding the
rails searching for work.
I loved the historic photos, the interesting stories and......
Oh yes the quilt blocks!
It really opened my eyes to how hard times
were during the depression and the people who
risked everything to find work.
Loved this book!
Broadbent's is starting A "Hobo Quilt Club"...
