June 20 - Martha Spark

Join us Monday evening at 7:00 for guest speaker, Martha Spark, for her program, "A Tisket, A Tasket - Oh! So Many Baskets!".  Martha will also facilitate a workshop titled, "The Art of Renewal,
with Triage Session".  This workshop focuses on the art & science of quilt restoration.
We will have instruction in the morning with lots of information on the “How To’s” and the “Whys” of this skilled craft. We will look at:
• accepted standards in the field of quilt restoration
• examples of quilts with various types of restoration work
• the basic “tools of the trade” commonly used.

The afternoon session will be a Triage Session of YOUR QUILTS, TOPS or BLOCKS
brought for sharing and Martha’s recommendations for restoration and /or conservation.  The class will end with an overview of Historic Fabric Dating, from the mid 1800s to the mid 1900s, with original, period examples from Martha’s Antique & Vintage Fabric Collection.
Anyone who is interested in learning about old quilts and textiles, and who would like
to learn the “do’s and don’ts” of Quilt Restoration – is encouraged to join us!!
