Scrapbook: Coverlets
Category: Guild Meetings
Coverlet show at 3-8-15 meeting
Members brought coverlets they had woven themselves (Paul Scott's green-and-white is shown here), inherited, and bought -- most antique (back to 1840s), some modern reproductions. A very colorful display, and a great learning experience for us all.
