Marie Webster

Marie Webster was an influential quilt designer in the early 1900s. Her floral appliqué designs, created at the height of the Arts & Crafts movement, are still widely appreciated and imitated today, more than a century after her first designs were published. This 30 - 45 minute presentation details how Marie got started in the quilt business, how her designs were unique at the time, and what her patterns and kits included.

This presentation is available for your guild virtually or in-person. $300. Travel costs will also be included for in-person presentations. Contact us today!

Fabrics in the United States:

1750s to 1950s

As you know, the fabrics available to us today have a huge impact on our clothes and the quilts we make. So it was in the past. This presentation looks at the fabrics from Colonial days to the 1950s and answers some of those pressing questions you may have. Where did the term "chintzy" come from? How do you pronounce "toile?" What did kids think of wearing feed sack underwear?

This presentation is available for your guild virtually or in-person. $300. Travel costs will also be included for in-person presentations. Contact us today!
