The quilters will participate in another discussion after Saturday’s matinee. Ticketholders to any “Gee’s Bend” performance can attend on a space-available basis, but seating priority goes to ticketholders for those performances.

Taproot’s regional premiere of “Gee’s Bend” runs through Feb. 28. Click here for more info and tickets. You can see a little preview of “Gee’s Bend” on the Seattle Channel.
