Amish Quilts and Quilting Resources

Amish Abstractions: Quilts from the Collection of Faith and Stephen Brown is a book and an exhibit currently showing at the DeYoung Museum in San Francisco through June 6, 2010. The quilt image pictured was copied from a postcard purchased at the exhibit.

Ellin Klor, librarian and quilter, will talk about the quilts on Thursday, March 18th following a quilting computer resources class taught by Mary Boyle, also a librarian and quilter. In the hands-on computer class, using the Internet, you will learn how to find quilting friends, quilt stores, fabric, tools, and classes both locally and nationally. The presentations are free and begin at 9:30 in the Technology Center and will continue at 10:30 in the Sycamore Room. Sign up when you are in the library in the Technology Center or at the Reference Desk on the 2nd floor or call (408) 615-2900 during library hours.
