Louise & Ruby's Trunk Show


These 2 ladies - Louise & Ruby - have been friends for decades. It shows in their trunk show performances where they dress up in their 1950's style Sunday best and share their quilts, stories, and laughter with audiences.


Louise and Ruby not only create beautiful new quilts, they also collect and repair old quilts. The trunk show begins with showing some of the wonderful treasures they've pulled from dumpsters and bought at auctions over the years. The ugliest old quilt becomes a beautiful treasure once they've repaired and cleaned it up.


And the new quilts they create are works of art. The stories and laughter, however, are the best parts of their trunk show.
