| QUILT SHOW SPEAKERS AND OTHER ACTIVITIES
On Friday, Lynn Gorges, Textile Conservator and Restoration Specialist, will discuss Sanitary
Commission Quilts. These quilts were made in the North for wounded soldiers hospitalized right in
New Bern. Lynn will share this history at 10 am and again at 2 pm.
On Saturday, Pepper Cory, will discuss the “The Art of Real Scrap Quilting” at 10:00 am. What
defines a scrap quilt today? Are there any boundaries when making a scrapquilt? Then at 2:00 pm
Pepper will discuss "On the Trail/Drunkard's Path". The classic Drunkard's Path quilt pattern has
an interesting history; it comes to us from England and before that, ancient Rome! All lectures
take place in the Berne rooms upstairs.
Come out to view over 300 quilts, multiple vendors, exhibits, the famous Twice Around Treasures
booth which has moved upstairs for the added space, the exclusive GuildBoutique and even take a
quilt home at the Quilts for Sale booth.
The guild’s gorgeous 2020 Raffle Quilt will be revealed during this show!!
