During her trunk show, she tells how the quilt feature in the paper came about, the patterns that were published, as well as the designers who had overseen the feature.

Feedsacks 

Vintage cotton bags that once held commodities are featured in this trunk show. Not only will you be able to see a wide range of original bags, but beautiful quilts made from these humble fabrics are also shown. You will hear about how staples for the kitchen such as salt, sugar, and flour, as well as feed for farm animals, came to be packaged in fabric bags. During hard times, the bags were an enormous windfall to the homemaker who sewed clothing for the family. And once the bag manufacturers began using dress prints for the bags, women were able to make lovely clothing from the fabric some called “chicken linen.” 

Due to the nature of this event once purchased there is no refunds or cancellations, no exceptions.
