Utah Quilt Appraisals

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.


  1. I wish I lived closer to Utah so I could visit your booth!

  2. Hi Sandra. Thanks for the suggestion to look at the Rose of Sharon quilts over here. They are wonderful and, yes, so inspirational. Loved visiting.
    Cheers, Karen.

  3. Appraisal is so important for us quilters and collectors!! I encourage everyone to have their treasured quilts appraised, both for personal satisfaction and for insurance.
