Let’s Talk About Quilts at the Fairfield Public Library

Quilting may date back as far as ancient Egypt, but it continues to be popular with crafters and collectors. The Fairfield Woods Branch Library, 1147 Fairfield Woods Road, will be Talking About Quilts with Susan J. Jerome on Saturday, Oct. 17, at 2 p.m.

Pieces of fabric can have the power to evoke an emotional response. Using images of antique quilts and quilted objects, Ms. Jerome will discuss some of the definitions and ideas surrounding the word “quilt.” Learn about textile history and how technological changes influenced the projection of quilts during the 19th century. Learn how to properly store textile heirlooms for future generations.

Susan J. Jerome is the Collection Manager at the University of Rhode Island Historic Textile and Costume Collection. She earned her MS degree from the URI Department of Textiles, Fashion Merchandising and Design.

Please feel free to bring one quilt or quilted object along to enhance the discussion. Advanced registration is required due to the limited space. All programs at the Fairfield Public Library are free of charge. For more information and to register for this event call 203-255-7308, or visit us on the web www.fairfieldpubliclibrary.org .
