Tiny Treasures Trunk Show, Lecture and Doll Quilt Workshop
Spend the day and step into the secret world of children and their quilts! Through antique and vintage quilts, trade advertising and images you will learn the important role children held in the American household and the significance their toy treasures still hold today. The afternoon portion of the day will be spent creating a truly historic looking treasure - a unique American Doll Quilt! A doll quilt pattern designed by Zieber will be provided.

Antebellum in America Lecture and Trunk Show

A fabulous opportunity to spend the day with Leah and an amazing collection of antique textiles...up close and in detail. The focus for this event "Those Fabulous Fifties: Quilts in Antebellum America". Together we will explore the textiles, history and relevance of quilts during the 19th century years leading up to the Civil War. This presentation will include up close quilt and textile viewing and discussion. Participants are encouraged to bring along any quilts, tops, blocks or other historical information/ephemera that they feel is relevant to the topic of "Pre-Civil War America."
