Antique Quilt Tops for Show and for Sale with Pat Yamin
11 am – 12 pm, Saturday, September 14

Pat Yamin, well-known in the Quilting Industry for well over 55 years has been buying antique quilt tops and quilts for her books, lectures, and workshops. History was her major in college and her fondness for historic textiles has been her desire. From the late 1880's to the 1940's, the fabric that was used tells us a story, and the patterns quilters chose to stitch. The most common question is why did they make quilt tops? Come and learn the secrets at Pat’s lecture.

Marguerite Ickis, author of “The Standard Book of Quiltmaking and Collecting,” (often called "the quilter's bible") states, "if these old quilts could talk, they would tell me the story of the quiltmaker and her life." Unfortunately, we rely on books, diaries, and the quilters of the past to share this information with us.

Pat has decided the time has come to share her stories and sell part of her quilt top collection. We are thrilled she is coming to the PNQE and that our attendees have the first opportunity to buy one or more of her antique quilt tops.

We hope you will join Pat for this one-time event and take home one of her treasures.

Checks and cash only, sorry no credit cards.
