A Magical History Tour

Sit back, and let the author of American Quiltmaking: 1970-2000 lead you on a rollicking journey through quiltmaking in our time. Elly will share many secrets and stories about the explosion of fabrics and designs, the ground-breaking tools and techniques, and the larger-than-life personalities. She’ll show you some of the best and best-loved quilts of our lifetime. Bet many of you find this a trip down memory lane!

Why not invite guild members to bring a quilt made in the 1970s or ‘80s, or their very first quilt for our Show ‘n Tell!

"I know everyone really enjoyed your talk and slide presentation. It brought back many memories for me—I previously lived in Northern Virginia and in 1974, I was a founding member of Jinny Beyer's Guild, Quilter's Unlimited! Thank you so much."—Blanche Link, Berks Quilters Guild, Berks County, Pennsylvania
