SALT LAKE CITY -- Nationally recognized quilter and storyteller Jodi Warner will host a series of free, public storytelling events next Saturday, May 14, at the Church History Museum, 45 N. West Temple in downtown Salt Lake City.
Warner will host children's story hours at 2:30 p.m. and 4 p.m.
She'll give a presentation for adults, titled "Story of a Quilt Artist," at 7 p.m.
Each of these events will be in the auditorium of the Church History Museum.
"During the afternoon presentations, children will enjoy listening to the combining of quilts and stories that have traditionally been wrapped up together at bedtime," states a news release from the church.
This presentation promotes the relationship between quilts and stories.
Warner has created and assembled a patchwork collection to encourage the sharing of stories between children and adults and to nurture the beauty of the human response to quilts.
Those who attend may listen to Book of Mormon stories unfold as Warner shares her award-winning quilt, "Lessons Among the Leaves."
Selections to be shown also include quilts made specifically to help illustrate familiar stories, such as "The Tale of Peter Rabbit" by Beatrice Potter, as well as pieces paired with more contemporary tales, such as "The Wild Christmas Reindeer" by Jan Brett.
"Bright colors, varied shapes, and wonderful storybooks make this presentation fun for children and adults," states the news release.
Seating is limited for this event, so please reserve a seat for your child by calling 801-240-4615.
The 7 p.m. presentation geared toward adults will include a brief introduction to Warner's personal quilting journey.
