Fashioned for FLOTUS: Fussell to visit Columbus Museum to discuss making Michelle Obamas quilt

Local quilt maker and arts advocate Cathy Fussell is set to speak at the Columbus Museum this week as a part of their Lecture Series.

Fussell will discuss her experience creating the “Apollo Revisited: Homage to Alma Woodsey Thomas,” a quilt for first lady Michelle Obama, and what it was like to attend the First Lady’s Luncheon last May.

Mercedes Parham, marketing and media director for the Columbus Museum, is looking forward to Fussell’s lecture this week.
