Every quilt has a story as textile conservator Ann Wasserman knows. Ann will share stories from 30 years of adventures repairing quilts. Family history stories embodied by the quilts, the thought processes and guidelines determine which techniques Ann chooses. Topics include the why’s and how’s of restoration, conservation, rebuilding severely damaged quilts, and more. There will also be tales of why to decide to do nothing at all and love your quilt just the way it is.
As you listen to Ann, enjoy viewing the Victorian inscribed quilt which is the centerpiece of the Melrose History Quilt Project. and “Stitched Connections,” a contemporary Fiber Art exhibit inspired by the events.
Entrance is free (donations gladly accepted) but registration required. Please RSVP to Quilt Repair Tales on Eventbrite.
