Announcing Our *Quilt Restoration Workshop*

My restoration buddy Martha Spark and I have been planning our brand new Quilt Restoration Workshop for the past year.  And now - here we are - venue, schedule, a pretty flyer, and registration forms, ready to go!   All the details and registration forms are on my website.

July 23 - 25, 2020
Three full days of lectures, quilt study, practice sewing, and much more.

Ye Old Schoolhouse Quilt Shop in Cedarburg, WI.
A lovely shop specializing in reproduction fabrics, situated in a destination town of antique and art shops and home of the Wisconsin Quilt Museum.
Lodging in nearby Grafton, WI.

Well, those of you who read this blog know that I've been restoring and conserving quilts for my customers for many years now, nearly 40 in fact, and wrote a book a few years ago (see sidebar).  Martha shares the same longevity in her background, with the addition of several jobs and training with museum textile collections.

We are eager to get more folks interested in and learning about the art and craft of saving our collective quilt history.  There are lots and lots of wonderful quilts out there with wonderful stories, and the more we can save, the better off the world will be.  As we all know, quilts are just that special!
