The Maricopa Public Library hosted the “Between the Covers Quilt and Nostalgia Show” Saturday night as part of its Winter Reading Club theme.
“The library has never done anything like this before,” Maricopa Public Library manager Erik Surber said. “Quilts connect us to the past and keep older traditions alive, which I think is important.”
The event showcased dozens of quilts and allowed the library to host its first after-hours adult event. The quilts were provided by Maricopa Divas and the Sisterhood of the Traveling Quilts, and the after-hours show featured Jan Sandwich in a rare appearance as herself for “The Jan Sandwich Nostalgia Show.”
“I’ve been here before as Mother Goose and Wendy Witch at Halloween, but I’m so happy to be here tonight as myself,” Sandwich said.
