Next Meeting: April 15, 2021
Speaker: Gretchen Schultz
"Bed Turning of Antique Quilts"
Our own local expert on all matters related to quilting. Gretchen has been a co-owner of the Quilt Foundry, a multi-year member of the Gathering of Quilters and the Glass City Quilt Commission, and the Chairman of the Kaleidoscope Quilt Show. She is presently Vice President of Ohio Quilts!!, a statewide quilting organization, and a member of the Midwest Fabric Study Group. Gretchen regularly appraises quilts and accepts commissions to repair vintage quilts.
Gretchen has vast and interesting collection of vintage and antique sewing tools, quilts in all stages of completion, and sewn items such as aprons and kitchen linens. Gretchen has a unique “super power”. She can look at a sample of fabric, and tell what decade it was made – very impressive!
