Subject: Golf Quilts This link should take you to a news page from The Chronicling America Project at The Library of Congress. The article I want you to read is on the left side top or Ctrl F "quilt". It is a wonderful story about finding something you love to do and then finding a way to make it happen. Sorry for the gushing but it is about a young woman who made 'golf quilts' in 1907. It appears she and her mother made at /least/ a couple dozen. By any s-t-r-e-t-c-h of the imagination, has anyone come across one of these? http://www.loc.gov/chroniclingamerica/lccn/

Also f.y.i -- next week is Americana week in NYC, and there are lots of antiques shows in town. Full list of activities is likely to be in Antiques and Arts weekly publication, maybe the NY Times too. If anyone comes to NYC, I'll be exhibiting at ANTIQUES MANHATTAN, 135 West 18th Street (the Altman Building) easy to get to by subway, bus, cab. Thursday January 17, Friday January 18, Saturday January 19, and Sunday January 20. Come say hi and put a face to your name. Laura Fisher

Subject: ? final opportunity ? From: QuiltEvalsaol.com Date: Thu, 10 Jan 2008 11:03:35 EST X-Message-Number: 1 -------------------------------1199981015 Content-Type: text/plain; charset="US-ASCII" Content-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit Hello all and a belated Happy New Year to everyone! I do not mean to be blatant, and truly mean this not as an advertisement but as a thought to share access to what treasures France has while they are so available for us to see. I am using this forum as I feel the need to get word out that the open access and availability we have to one of the collections in France may not exist after this year as the curator at one of the museums has announced retirement in early 2009. As such, not knowing who will be hired as a replacement, any future groups I take may be at jeopardy of tighter controls on a marvelous collection. I truly believe that the free access we have is due in part to the graciousness of this curator. My next trip to France begins May 1 in France, April 30 in the US. Deposits for those traveling from the US and wishing to participate with the group air are due no later than January 20 (any unbooked seat will be forfeited on the 21st), otherwise final payment is due Feb 1. I know this is very last minute notice, but the opportunity to see these textiles is "tres magnifique", and I have no idea whether it will be the same once she retires. If you are interested in more information please see my web site _http://worldofquiltstravel.com/Upcoming.htm_ (http://worldofquiltstravel.com/Upcoming.htm) and follow the link to the France trip. Warmly, Deb Roberts
