About this event

Quilters now days take for granted the vast array of beautiful fabrics available to us, and the quilting tools many of us never even dreamed of when we first began sewing and quilting.

Join quilter Sharon Aernecke Aitchison as she takes a look at the earliest evidence of quilted items to the necessities of quilts and forward to quilts becoming works of art.

How did quilt designs get their names? Is it hand-sewn or machine-pieced? What would a Colonist need a quilt for besides warmth? How did the oldest quilts withstand the wear and tear of use and time? Where are they now?

Explore with me some history of quilt-making and where we are today with the most intricate of designs and fabrics so rich and beautiful the women of the prairie would weep for.

Stick around afterward for a Q&A with Sharon — any and all questions about the quilting are welcomed and encouraged!
