Inspired by historical fiber arts handmade by Gettysburg and Adams County families during the Civil War era, the Daisy N. Motts Mommy & Me summer program series introduces children and youth to hand quilting, embroidery, beading and sewing fabric dolls. Rostered Artists for the Commonwealth of PA, Nancy Walker and Jef Savage instruct the in-depth, introductory bi-weekly classes where children can learn the history of fiber arts and be creative while making their own personal pieces.

The program series is presented in sessions on Tuesdays and Thursdays until Aug. 14, 2022, with a choice of morning or afternoon sessions at 10 a.m. until Noon or 2 until 4 p.m.

Children/youth ages 8-12 and their mothers or caregivers can register in advance for the hands-on summer program. Free registration is provided thanks to the generous contribution of Gettysburg Foundation President and CEO Wayne E. Motts, in memory of his mother, Daisy.
