Quilts: From Utility to Art by Linda Seward
Sun June 7, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm| £12
This talk traces the development of the quilt, from its origin as a utilitarian item to its rightful place in the world of art. Learn about the three traditional types of quilt, then discover how these styles have evolved into textile art. The talk features antique quilts as well as the exciting work of over 30 contemporary quilt artists.
Linda Seward has been doing needlework, sewing and handicrafts all her life. Her knowledge of quilting evolved while editing books on both sides of the Atlantic and by making her own quilts.
She has written twelve quilting books, including The Complete Book of Patchwork, Quilting and Appliqué, considered by many to be ‘the quilter’s bible.’
Her most recent quilt book is entitled The Ultimate Guide to Art Quilting.
Linda has appeared on television, internet and radio shows and writes for several quilt magazines, including a regular column in The Quilter magazine. She lectures internationally on quilt making and works as a freelance writer, editor and quilt judge.
This event will take place in the Edinburgh room at The Lygon Arms Hotel in Broadway.
