Details

History is fun when it’s all about quilts! Bill Volckening started collecting quilts 25 years ago. His collection includes more than 250 examples made between 1760 and present day. Rich with ideas and inspiration for today’s quilters, some of the old quilts are surprisingly modern. In this live web seminar, Bill Volckening will share some of the most outstanding and unusual examples from his collection, and will talk about what today’s quilters can glean from quilt history.

In this web seminar you will learn:

  • How specific styles of quilts were made in certain time periods.
  • What fabrics and methods of construction were popular at different times.
  • How the traditions of wholecloth, applique and pieced quiltmaking developed.
  • What types of quilts are most collectible, unusual and rare.
  • Tips for investing in an old quilt, including care, conservation and storage.
  • How quilt history can be a positive influence on your creativity.
  • Ways to make quilt history your own library of ideas.
  • How to spot a bargain when looking for an antique or vintage quilt.

Bill says: “If you love eye candy, this web seminar is for you. American quiltmaking is such a vibrant, creative field, and I have been lucky to handle some of the most extraordinary quilts made throughout the ages. In the process of sharing my collection I discovered quiltmakers have an insatiable appetite for old quilts because the quilts are full of wonderful ideas.”
