Not Just for Mother's Day

A trunk show of unusual antiques with special meaning for moms--Broken Dishes, Dresden Plates, Mending Fences, Wedding Ring....plus slides of award-winning quilts. All celebrate women and capture the joys, tribulations, and memories of family life. This collection of top-tier quilts celebrates women, capturing the joys, tribulations, and memories of family life, or commenting on social pressures. Some are deeply sentimental, others wild and quirky as all get out! I promise: Many more laughs than tears!

For the Show ‘n Tell!: Share the quilts your mom inspired, or the quilts you made for your mom, or as a mom, for your children or grandchildren.

All Stressed Out, No One to Choke, So I Might As Well Eat, by Pauline Salzman

Psycho Moms (detail), by Katherine L. McKearn and Diane Muse

"If only you could know the thanks behind each thought of your slide show of Mothers' Quilts…and the smiles you made us smile as we had warm memories of our own mothers and the generous things they did for us. Thanks so much."—Newtown Quilt Guild


"An enjoyable presentation, fun and lively.  Such an eclectic array of quilts!” -- Daria, Molly Pitcher Stitchers
