Potholders-That's Sew Gee's Bend

  • These potholders are all unique and one of a kind. Up your cooking game! Approximately 10"x10", but each varies in size due to the handmade nature.

  • As young girls, many of the women of Gee’s Bend trained or apprenticed in their craft with their mother, female relatives, or friends; other quilters, however, have been virtually self-taught. The women consider the process of “piecing” the quilt “top” to be highly personal. In Gee’s Bend, the top (the side that faces up on the bed) is always pieced by a quilter working alone and reflects a singular artistic vision. The subsequent process of “quilting” the quilt (sewing together the completed top), the batting and the back) is sometimes then performed communally, among small groups of women.
