Polly Mello, Quilt Historian

 

Quilts that Go Bump in the Night

Prepare yourself for a walk down the dark side of quilting, with quilts and ephemera from the infamous collection of Polly Mello as seen in the September/October issue of Quilters Newsletter Magazine 2008.

You will see Mourning quilts, Coffin Drapes, quilts of Presidential Demise and Assassination, quilts with creepy critters such as spiders, snakes, alligators, etc., Tragic Events from the newspaper headlines (the Lindbergh Kidnapping, the sinking of the ship Titanic), Celestial Phenomenon (think Haley’s Comet), and Creepy Crib Quilts. 

You will also see new quilts, including the award winning “Deep  Within My Heart Lies a Melody: A Memory of Texas”, a quilt covered in creatures! Plan to see quilts you will never see anywhere else!

Directions to meeting location. We’re easy to find!

Magazine Labels!  Guild Awareness Campaign and Decluttering for You!

These labels are ready for you to print at home and clear your stacks of quilting magazines by leaving at locations where magazines are shared such as a doctor’s or dentist’s offices, nail or hair salon, or even the place you get your car’s oil changed!

A terrific idea from Margaret Natof. Our thanks to her.

Not so interested in printing yourself? Pick up a packet of 10 or more at the next meeting–in the foyer as you come in.
