VCLLI: Gee’s Bend and Beyond: The Camden Shoe Shop & Quilt Museum

Online, AL

The Camden Shoe Shop & Quilt Museum, owned and directed by Betty Anderson, pays homage to Anderson’s parents and grandparents along with their hometowns of Camden and Gee’s Bend. This special interest activity will introduce many to her captivating stories, and educate participants on local and regional history, quilting, civil rights, and religion. The museum includes an eclectic display of quilts, furniture, artwork, period clothing, and documents, along with her father’s (Joe Anderson) historic shoe repair equipment, which dates to the late 1800s.
