THE NATIONAL QUILT MUSEUM CELEBRATES NATIONAL QUILTING DAY MARCH 18
Museum to host complimentary professional quilt evaluations and special seasonal exhibits
To celebrate National Quilting Day, The National Quilt Museum will host complimentary verbal quilt evaluations on March 18. For visitors to the museum on National Quilting Day and beyond, the museum will display thoughtfully curated special exhibits from world-renowned industry trailblazers this spring and summer, including Kaffe Fassett, Velda Newman and Marilyn Badger.
Complimentary Verbal Quilt Evaluations
To commemorate National Quilting Day, the museum will offer complimentary verbal quilt evaluations by Vickie Coleman, Kentucky’s only American Quilter’s Society-certified quilt appraiser. Coleman will offer clues to the quilt’s age, fabrics and techniques used in its construction, pattern name and general information about the era in which it was made. Information regarding the quilt’s handling and care will also be shared. No specific values will be provided, however, if a quilt is valued greater than $250, information on obtaining a written appraisal will be offered. No appointment is necessary. Interested individuals may bring the quilt(s), limit three per person, to The National Quilt Museum on Saturday, March 18 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m. View Coleman’s biography here.
