About The Event

Gee’s Bend tells the story of post-Civil War Boykin, Alabama and the Pettway family. The

Pettways, in 1939, teach us how to survive civil unrest, poverty, bad weather and show gratitude

during rough times. Sheryl Ned leads the cast as Sadie. Her strong will to survive by quilt-

making is observed by the whole family: Nella, Sadie's older sister; Alice, Sadie's mother; Asia,

Sadie's daughter and Macon.

In addition to the performance, the audience will be able to see on display and in the show, quilts

from across Louisiana and the country, including Gee's Bend. Ms. Katheryn Batiste, is

Coordinator for Quilting Sisters and member of Quilter's Guild of Acadiene. The guild with

others.
