Lecture and Trunk Show:
Thursday Night, October 18, 2018 – “How Old Is It? Dating Antique Quilts”
For most quilt collectors, knowing the ages of their quilts is very important. The fabrics used in a quilt hold the most direct information on age. A large part of this lecture is devoted to the history of fabrics, dyes, and printing techniques. Other factors, such as pattern, size, batting, etc., that can add to the determination of a quilt’s age are also discussed.
There are no workshops this month.
