March 16, 2020 Meeting: "QUILT APPRAISING: From Civil War to Present Day" with Julia Fikse

Quilt appraising is not just for vintage quilts. All quilts have value. The value may be sentimental, it may be monetary and/or it may document a particular time in history. Julia Fikse will be joining us for a discussion of quilt appraisals and our format will be a bit different than usual so all may participate. She will start at 6:30pm with a “Bed Turning”. That means that she will layer two tables with quilts and one by one uncover them and briefly talk about each of them. We will all gather around for this part of the program. After the usual business part of our meeting, Julia will begin her lecture talking about and bringing us quilts from each era beginning in the Civil War to the present day. She will tell us about how you can tell when they were made, trends from each era and more.

In addition to your attendance, there are two ways you can participate:
1)  Discussion of a your quilt: If you would like Julia to discuss your quilt she will include it in the “Bed Turning"
2)  Written Appraisal: The cost for this appraisal is $75. This is not required for inclusion in the “Bed Turning"

To have your quilt included in either of the two areas described above, please send a photograph of your quilt to me (Alison Rowe at alisonrr@me.com) by March 10th. This will allow Julia time to prepare her feedback. You will also need to bring your quilt to the meeting.

This will be a fun and interactive lecture and we look forward to hosting Julia!

June 14, 2020: "Collage Quilt" with Julie Snow

Ever wish you could create one of those cool fabric art scenes that look so visually interesting? Come play with your fabric with us and have a fabulous time as we visualize, create and stitch up real works of art. Absolutely NO experience necessary. Start looking through your stash for novelty prints. It helps to have a plan of what you hope to create. Maybe something “boy” centric, or girly, or something in flowers, or musical, or wine and food. The sky’s the limit! Finished size roughly 16” x 20”. I love holding workshops where we plan to completely finish our art works – no UFO’s!
