I am so excited to be teaching at the this year’s Vermont Quilt Festival, “New England’s oldest and largest quilt festival.” The show runs June 23-25 in Essex Junction, Vermont – right outside of Burlington.
I cannot wait to share quilt finishing tips and techniques during my “Finishing School” class. That one is sold out, but if you are an aficionado of antique and vintage quilts and fabrics, join me in either of my Saturday half-day classes:
“Block Therapy” Got Quilts? Got Questions? Bring your vintage quilts, blocks, or tops and ask the expert for advice. The question of what to do with older textiles plagues many owners of handmade quilts. Bonnie will offer advice on the care, storage, display, sale, or donation of vintage quilts. This program addresses how best to decide what to do with a vintage quilt, including evaluating its age, condition and provenance (its story). Bonnie will bring examples to show, and attendees are encouraged to bring one or two quilts, tops, or block sets for discussion.
“How Old Is This Quilt” is an interactive, hands-on workshop for fabric enthusiasts who want to see vintage fabrics up-close. Bonnie brings samples from her own collection of antique fabrics, quilt blocks and quilts. Participants are urged to bring fabrics, blocks, tops, or quilts to be identified, dated and discussed.
The window for signups will close soon! Here is a direct link to registration for my classes. I hope to see you in Vermont!
