Quilting

Quilting in America became popular in the 19th century, when distinctly American patchwork and appliqué designs were created. These quilts were produced for utility and pleasure and are the inspiration for today's quilters. Quilts are also an important part of American Folk Art. Quilting is the stitching that holds the three layers (top, batting and backing) of a quilt together. It'a usually stitched in a pattern to stabilize the quilt and enhance the design of the quilt top.

At Threads of Tradition, the quilt shop at Sauder Village, skilled volunteer hand quilters are at work most Tuesdays through Thursdays and are always willing to share their knowledge with guests. The shop offers a wide variety of top-quality cotton fabric, books, patterns and notions for the quilter, and is also the home of the Village Quilters Guild and hosts many classes throughout the year.
