Quilt Appraiser to present meeting in Aitkin

AITKIN - Quilt Appraiser Bev Proulx will speak at 1 p.m. Sept. 9 during the Ripple River Quilter's meeting at the 40 Club Convention Center in Aitkin.

Cost is free to members of $5 for non-members.

Proulx, a former high school and college English teacher, drama director and speech coach, will use her antique and contemporary collection to look at how quilters have used color for the past 200 years.

Proulx has been quilting for more than 45 years and studying fabric history for more than 35 years. She began her antique and vintage collection about 25 years ago when she bought her first antique blocks. In the past 15 years, she has added quilts, tops, blocks, fabric pieces and yardage to her collection.

Those interested in having their quilt appraised, may bring their quilt and pay a $40 fee for Proulx to appraise it.
