Quilt History Newsletter

 

Women Quilting

Making a quilt is great – perusing patterns, adding to the stash, making the first sample block, looking at layouts and quilting the finished top.  Women have enjoyed  (and endured) quilt making for hundreds of years.  When you read about the history of quilts and the lives of the women and men who made them you grow in appreciation for the craft that we all enjoy.

The newsletter from Two Bits Patches will give you fascinating snippets about quilt making and women’s social history.  When was the Golden Age of signature quilts? What is feedsack material? How did the sewing machine change women’s lives? How old is Sunbonnet Sue?
