April General Meeting and Program

Deb Geyer, Executive Director of the Quilters Hall Of Fame will be present to talk about Fabrics in the US, 1750s-1950s.

As you know, the fabrics available to us today have a huge impact on our clothes and the quilts we make. So, it was in the past. This presentation looks at the fabrics from colonial days to the 1950s and answers some of those pressing questions you may have. Where did the term “chintzy” come from? How do you pronounce “toile?” What did kids think of wearing feed sack underwear?

Born and raised in Indiana, Deb Geyer has a degree in Industrial Design from Purdue University. She has been a quilter since 1986, squeezing in quilting time while raising her three children. In 2011, she took on the challenge of managing The Quilters Hall of Fame located in Marion, Indiana. This job combines three of her passions, history, museums, and quilting! And it means she gets to work every day with the best people in the world: quilters! The stories of the quilters, quilts and fabrics of the past are fascinating. Knowing them helps us to know how to move forward into the future. Deb is looking forward to sharing stories with you.
