KCRQF 2019 – Trunk Show and Workshops with Lori Lee Triplett

Lori Lee Triplett, Business Manager for Quilt and Textile Collections, has successfully combined a variety of passions which include research, writing, and performing into the quilt world. As a lecturer and instructor she brings her experience from stage, screen, and radio to make the presentations fun yet educational.
Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival has scheduled a trunk show and two dyeing workshops with Lori.  In her trunk show — “Out of Africa” — you will meet Mary MacAlister, a missionary who went to Africa, and hear about her adventures and textile discoveries.  Lori makes taking one of her dyeing workshops fun and easy — she brings all the supplies, you show up in “old” clothes and enjoy the process!

Lori Lee Triplett — KCRQF 2019 Instructor

Along with her sister Kay, Lori Lee Triplett established Quilt & Textile Collections.  In addition to managing their extensive collection of antique quilts and publishing books about their collections, Lori travels the country and world presenting trunk shows and workshops.

We are excited to have Lori participating in the Festival and sharing her love of textiles and quilts!  Here is her description of what you will experience at her trunk show “Out of Africa”:

“Meet Mary MacAlister, a missionary who went to Africa to teach only to become a student of the amazing Africans and their textiles. Mary will regale you with her tales of Africa while showing you a sampling of West African textiles featuring different methods of dyeing, weaving, and indigo resist.”

In addition to the trunk show, Lori will be presenting two dyeing workshops:  “African Indigo Resist Scarves” and “Adire: African Indigo Resist and Dye”.
