*CANCELLED* Hand Pieced Sunflower

In years gone by, the running stitch was used to piece together everything from clothing to quilts. There is very little documentation from the past about how to achieve this stitch because “everyone knew how to do it.” The hand sewn running stitch was a skill passed down from mother to daughter and can be very portable, relaxing, and sometimes more accurate for more intricate blocks.

This particular block has been called Russian Sunflower and Sunburst.

Pictured is a quilt dating to the mid to late 1800’s, from the Hallockville collection, utilizing this block pattern.

Join instructor, Connie Klos, in exploring two easy hand piecing techniques, including the running stitch and English Paper Piecing for accurately and easily creating this quilt block.

Please bring your hand sewing kit and embroidery threads (off white, grey, tan).  *embroidery experience helpful, but not required.*

Materials included: fabric for one block

Workshop is being held on: Friday, October 11th 6:30-8:30PM & Saturday, October 26th 10-12PM

$40 Members   |   $50 Non-Members

National Quilting Day 2019

Hallockville Museum Farm & Suffolk County Historical Society are excited to sponsor 2019 National Quilting Day. Join us for a presentation and demonstration of this year’s theme, Preserving the Fabrics of Your Life. National Quilting Day is observed annually on the 3rd Saturday in March and celebrates this traditional craft and art form along with recognizing quilt makers and the love and skill that goes into the making of quilts.

 

Preserving the Fabrics of Your Life”  Presenter: Susan Jerome

Nearly all families have a treasured quilt, wedding dress or other precious textile heirloom. But are these treasures being properly handled and stored? There are so many questions to consider: should an old quilt be washed? What about dry cleaning? What’s the best way to store a wedding dress? Can all the spots come out of the tablecloth or should you just live with them? And when should you call in the professional?

Susan Jerome is an expert in textile history and storage practices. Ms. Jerome will discuss how to evaluate old fabrics and appropriate ways to preserve these often fragile textiles. Her presentation will be followed by a “bed-turning” demonstration, where she will feature quilts from her own collection to demonstrate simple preservation techniques that everyone can use to preserve their own family treasures.
