Quilters


by Molly Newman and Barbara Damashek

Quilters is a musical celebrating the struggles and triumphs of seven American pioneer women.  Each woman stitches the stories that they want to remember into the quilt squares that will communicate to generations yet to be.  It’s a beautiful, funny, moving tribute to frontier life.
