September Lecture – Pat Yamin – “Unfinished Business”

September 28 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

Pat Yamin, president and founder of Come Quilt With Me, is well known in the quilting industry, and has appeared on many television and radio quilt shows, the most recent being The Quilt Show with Ricky Tims and Alex Anderson. Her company manufactures templates and other tools that assure accuracy and shorten the time necessary to make a quilt.

This lecture is a look at Pat’s collection of quilt tops and the stories they tell.  Pat began her love affair with old textiles at a Brimfield, Massachusetts outdoor flee market. There were mountains of pillowcases, dresser scarves, doilies and tablecloths everywhere; quilt blocks and unfinished tops piled carelessly in baskets and on tables. Pat purchased her first quilt top (a late 19th century white and blue four patch) for $12.50. The history of these treasures is mostly unknown. What happened, why were they unfinished and abandoned? Come see Pat’s fascinating treasures and hear her thoughts on what might have been.
