Quilt & Textile Collections — antique fiber arts a stitch above the rest!
It seems appropriate on Christmas Eve to feature these collectors of antique quilts, especially their collection of red and green quilts.
The collection has an emphasis on pre-1860 quilts, but recent additions include folk art textiles and contemporary quilts from around the world. Because of the delicate nature of the quilts in their collection, they continue to share them through publication of books. They will bring quilts, books and textiles to their booth at Festival.
A recent blog post featured this 1876 Centennial Quilt. You can learn more about Quilt & Textile Collections on their website, find out more about their presentations and exhibits, and follow them on Facebook.
