Group Description

The word "quilt" summons a host of images: quilting bees, pioneer housewives, crazy quilts, maybe even modern art quilts. It's one of the best-known and most popular American crafts.

But did you know that quilting started at least 2,000 years ago in Siberia? Or that early quilts were wholecloth, not patchwork? Or that silk quilts were the rage at the court of Henry VIII?

This group is devoted to the study, discussion, and recreation of pre-colonial quilts, primarily in the European Middle Ages and Renaissance. Join us as we ferret out the unknown history of quilts!
