Online Interactive Trunk Show: Antique & Vintage Quilts
Following on from our first-ever Trunk Show in late November, long-time Monkie contributor Sarah Payne hosts our second such evening of chat & enlightenment with this fabulous Trunk Show, where our hugely engaging host conveys her absolute passion for quilting, especially vintage & antique quilts!...
Introduction by Sarah:-
I love to travel – and I love to quilt! So I am lucky enough to be able to combine the two and visit some amazing places around the world, bringing back quilts from far flung places. This talk will give you the opportunity to take a closer look at my collection of quilts from around the world purchased on trips to India, Nepal, Canada and the USA. We will look at how they have been created, the techniques used, how the techniques have travelled from place to place, and how quilting can be a record of our own social history. We will talk about how a fabric from India was banned in the 17thbut not until after it had changed the way we dressed and decorated our homes. We will look at how traditional techniques are still used in some areas of the world to great effect and how the art of quilting is changing lives for the better. I will have my collection of modern and vintage Indian quilts as well some real antiques that I have collected on the way. The oldest one I care for at the moment has been dated to the American Civil war. With the magic to cameras I will be able to bring you closer to my quilts than you would ever get in a real trunk show because some of these objects are simply too delicate to handle. But you will get up close and personal to the quilts and their stories. You will never look at a quilt in the same way again.
What You Will Learn in this Online Interactive Trunk Show:-
This is a talk so you will simply get to sit and enjoy the talk and view the lovely quilts while you enjoy snacks and nibbles in the conmfort of your own home.
