A Quilt Guild based in Rutland Vermont, with members from surrounding towns and counties.
OCTOBER 21st GUEST SPEAKER
Our October 21st meeting will be interesting for quilters, historians and Civil War enthusiasts.
Pamela Weeks, the Binney Family Curator at the New England Quilt Museum, will discuss Civil War Soldiers’ Quilts, along with the roles women played on the home front and the battle-field.
Of an estimated 250,000 quilts made, few have survived. One of the quilts Pam studied was made by Caroline Frances (Bowen) Fairbanks, of Rutland. It was made while she
lived in Brandon and is stenciled with her married name, Mrs. L. B. Fairbanks, and Brandon Ladies Society.
On October 22nd, Pamela will be teaching a class called Strips and Bits: Patternless
Scrap Quilts. Participants should plan to bring an assortment of scraps. “You will learn free-form cutting, approximation piecing and leave with a freer attitude about playing with fabric."
The class will be from 9am-3:30pm, at the Leahy Center, Rutland Regional Medical Center. The cost is $45 for members and $50 for non members.
