Maple Leaf Quilters
Richard Cleveland will present ‘The Textile Detective at Work’ when the Maple Leaf Quilters Guild meets on Tuesday, October 20, at 7 p.m. at Christ the King Church Parish Hall in Rutland. He will discuss his passion for antique quilts and textiles and share tips on caring for them. He will also examine old quilts brought in by members to identify age, technique and perhaps some history. Cleveland is one of the founders of the Vermont Quilt Festival, and co-authored the book ‘Plain and Fancy: Vermont’s People and Their Quilts.’ Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Non-members are welcome at the meetings; there is a small fee.
