Have you wondered what to do with the odd, orphan blocks you have collected or been given as family heirlooms? Do you have vintage or antique quilt tops that you just don’t know what to do with? How should these collectibles be finished? Or should they even be finished? Brenda Grampsas, American Quilter’s Society Certified Quilt Appraiser will be giving tips on March 14th at 11 AM at the Horry County Museum on what to do with these collectibles. She will also show quilts she has made from such blocks and quilt tops.
Brenda has a lifetime of sewing and quilting experience with a passion for all things quilted. Her experience in teaching the “how to” of quilting extends not only to adults but many years of quilting classes with children and teens. Watching others catch the “quilt bug” through her shared trunk shows, lectures and workshops feeds the natural teacher in her. She is inspired by quilts from many eras and is especially fascinated by scrap quilts because of their wide range of fabrics. Brenda is very involved in the restoration of quilts. Teaching others the art of restoration has become advantageous due to the many requests for restoration service. More information can be found on Brenda’s website www.thimbletales.com.
The program will begin at 11 AM at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street, Conway SC. This event is free and open to the public.
