Gee’s Bend Quilt Collective Building

Located in Wilcox County | What you’ll find: Arts & Culture

Located in Gee’s Bend, home of the famous Quilters of Gee’s Bend.  Nestled into a curve of the Alabama River, Gee’s Bend was once the site of large cotton plantations owned by Joseph Gee and Mark Pettway.  The women of Gee’s Bend developed a distinctive, sophisticated quilting style that they have passed on for at least six generations to the present day.  The quilts are housed at the Community House and can be viewed by appointment (334) 573-2323.  The Gee’s Bend Quilt Collective serves as the exclusive means of selling and marketing the quilts.  The person in charge of the quilt room in the community center is Mary Ann Pettway.  The Collective is open irregular hours.
