A Quilt Guild based in Rutland Vermont, with members from surrounding towns and counties.
October 20th Meeting
“The Textile Detective at Work”
Our October 20th guild meeting is one you don’t want to miss! This will be a hands-on antique quilt show and tell about antique quilts led by Richard Cleveland of Northfield Vermont.
He will talk about antique textiles and his passion for antique quilts. And, with his detective skills, he will talk about how fabrics are used to date quilts in our very own MLQ members’ quilts!
You will also learn important tips about caring for an antique quilt.
You may know Richard Cleveland from the Vermont Quilt Festival, which he helped found, or the book Plain and Fancy: Vermont’s People and Their Quilts he co-authored. Plus he is an enjoyable speaker to listen to. What you may not know is that for years he traveled to all the quilt shows in Vermont in his quest to see and learn the stories of our antique quilts.
Meeting starts at 7:00pm with time for refreshments and visiting beginning at 6:30pm.
