Sandra Starley – “Patterns Through Time: Revolutionary Changes in American Quilts”
Come see antique and vintage quilts from 1830-1940, learn about the history of quilts and America from the early years to the Depression Era. See the changes in style and society and the economy by comparing quilt patterns and differences in quilting from the 1800′s to the 1900′s. Sandra will show at least 12 different patterns (at least 2 examples of each) from log cabins, to grandmother’s flower gardens, to rocky roads to Kansas, etc. You will be able to see the changes in styles, methods, patterns, and fabrics over a very busy century.

Sandra Starley is a nationally certified quilt appraiser, historian, researcher, quilt collector, lecturer, designer and instructor. She maintains an extensive collection of both antique quilts (early, unusual and masterpieces) and research materials and is active in the American Quilt Study Group and the Quilt Alliance. She presents trunk shows on quilt history/dating and antique quilts as material culture. She enjoys reproducing quilts from her collection especially in small scale. She has won national awards for both her antique reproductions and has been part of several traveling exhibits and has quilts featured in national quilt magazines and several historical quilt books. She is presenting two workshops for us. Also, see Sandra’s blog:
