Grafton Village Quilts – Dreams Really Do Come True! And “Wonders of Small Blocks” Mark Your Calendar!
When I first met Kathy Metelica Cray in 2002, one of the things she talked about was one day having a quilt business. As an avid quilt and textile collector, with 25 years of experience studying quilts, it was inevitable that her dream would come true. Well August 1st, 2013 was the day!
Kathy opened her bright, sun filled shop “Grafton Village Quilts” in the beautiful village of Grafton, Vermont. Her shop is brimming with delicious antique and vintage quilts, tops and quilt blocks, antique sewing tools, vintage Singer Featherweight Sewing Machines, new quilts and table runners by local quilters and more.
You can find out all about it on her website here.
Or better yet, come to Grafton on August 22, visit her shop, then stay until 6pm and head on over to the Brick Meeting House where I will be giving a lecture on the “The Wonder of Small Blocks”. It will be a lively presentation and trunk show where the secrets of small block quilts are revealed. You will see lots of inspiration with stunning examples of quilts from both books and quilts created since. I will divulge how the chaos theory of quilting will change your quilting life. And you will see some sensational antique small block quilts and find out why these quilts were made and the lessons they reveal. I hope you will join us and discover why small block quilts are so addictive to collect and create.
