I will be doing appraisals on May 5, 6 and 7, 2011 at the Home Machine Quilting Show (HMQS) in Salt Lake City/Sandy, Utah. I am certified by American Quilters Society (AQS) to appraise all types of quilts-antique, vintage and newly made and traditional and art quilts. I will be in booth #514 so please stop by. Appointments are still available, so please bring in your quilts. And I can also appraise quilts that are hanging in the show or in special exhibits or booths.
I will be doing a lecture Thursday at 2:00 p.m. on Challenge Quilts-how to find and enter national challenges. On Friday at 5:00 my lecture is on Learning from the Past-creating new quilts from inspiring antique quilts. I will also have a special exhibit with 12 wonderful antique quilts from 1830-1900.
And in my booth #514, I will have several quilts including the red and green masterpiece Quaker (Society of Friends) signature/inscribed quilt shown above. Dated 1850 with more than 150 names, genealogy, Spencerian drawings, friendship sentiments and even a poem. To see some close-ups from this quilt, see my Valentine's Day posting.
