Do you have a quilt made before 1960 that you wish you knew more about? Ever wondered if it’s worth anything?
Internationally known quilt appraiser Julie Silber presented a lecture and trunk show of historic quilts. Her trunk show presented several quilts from her personal collection of “Rare & Historic Quilts.” and were all dated prior to 1960.
Enjoy our slide show to see what you missed from this historic collection.
SSQ offered a workshop on May 10 at the Clarion Hotel with Julie Silber as the featured presenter. Those participating in this workshop had the opportunity to bring a few pre-1960 quilts to the workshop, and learned about fabric and quilt dating, and received a verbal appraisal from Julie.
