MOTHERS: HISTORICAL, HYSTERICAL AND OTHERWISE

A good Mothers Day Program! Stories and quilts from history as well as a Mother that is not so well known.

HOW'S THAT COUGH NOW?

Showing and discussing quilts made using cigar silks, ribbons, cigarette felts, and quilt tops made from tobacco bags and tobacco premiums.

READING QUILTS

Bring your own quilt for an entertaining, educational, unique and fun program? I would love the opportunity to come and talk with your group about your own quilts. In addition to sharing some fascinating things about your quilts. I will also have information about the care and storage of quilts, some facts about quilt appraisals, the etiquette of ‘gifting’ quilts and answer questions about your quilted treasures.

Please contact me to set up a program or a possible appraisal day.

QUILTING MYTHS

We will bust myths and historical inaccuracies from the 1600's to today. If it's on the internet, it must be true? Right?

QUILT STUDY

A monthly quilt study in Northwest Arkansas.  A chance to learn about quilts, patterns, techniques, and fabrics. Held from Jan-Dec at 1:00 in the afternoon.  Email me for more information.

PROGRAMS/CLASSES

THE COMEDY OF QUILTS

A short program regarding quilts that are not ready for "prime time".  A look at pieces that give us a light-hearted view of their construction with the attitude that "done" is better than not at all. 

CIVIL WAR QUILTS AND THE UNDERGROUND RAILROAD

Some quits and a discussion of the quilts and their stories as well as a look at the Underground Railroad. Women of the North and the South.

OF CATS AND QUILTS

The Isle of Man and the cats and quilts from that barren land. Also learn about "Joe the Quilter". Lecture and workshop. Kits available.

THE THREE DISCIPLINES

Appraising, Judging & Documentation of quilts.  What happens at an appraisal? How does one judge a quilt show, what do you look for & what matters?  Documenting a quilt, why and how?  Good program for guilds!

LET FREEDOM RING!

Stories of our founding families from Priscilla Alden, Martha Washington, Betsy Ross, Dolley Madison and Frances Cleveland and their quilts.

THE QUILT CONNECTION

Exploring examples of signature quilts and what they can tell us about genealogy, migrations and a definition of community. Autograph and Signature quilts.
