Event description

Description

Every quilt has a story as textile conservator Ann Wasserman knows. Ann will share stories from 30 years of repairing quilts. The family history stories embodied by the quilts and conservation guidelines influence her thought processes, guiding her choice of techniques. Topics include the why’s and how’s of restoration, conservation, rebuilding severely damaged quilts, and more. There will also be tales of why to decide to do nothing at all and love your quilt just the way it is.

As you listen to Ann, enjoy viewing the Victorian inscribed quilt which is the centerpiece of the Melrose History Quilt Project. and "Stitched Connections," a contemporary Fiber Art exhibit inspired by the events. Around Melrose, learn more about the people whose names are on the quilt and Melrose in 1898 with the self-guided tour.

This event was sponsored in part by the Melrose Cultural Council and the Melrose Messina Fund for the Arts.
