Quilt Appraisals with Sandy Schweitzer

  The McHenry County Historical Society will offer an afternoon of quilt appraisals Sunday, Aug. 23.
  The event, with appraisals done by Crystal Lake quilt appraiser and author Sandy Schweitzer, will be from 1 to 4 p.m. in the research library of the museum, 6422 Main St., Union. A donation of $30 to the historical society is requested for each 15-minute verbal appraisal.
Schweitzer is a highly regarded quilt artist and teacher, as well as American Quilt Society certified appraiser. Her presentations, which are open to the public, are informative and entertaining.   Much like “Antiques Roadshow” viewers will learn about each quilt’s history, pattern and construction. Schweitzer has lectured extensively and also offers a variety of workshops. For information, email Schweitzer at sandys@mc.net.
  There are 12 slots available on a first come, first served basis. Pre-payment by check or credit card is required, with all proceeds benefiting the society.
Call 815-923-2267 to reserve your spot.
  Participants receive free admission to the museum, as do society members. Nonmembers pay a small admission charge. Registration and prepayment required. Checks made out to the McHenry County Historical Society. Credit card payments offered over the phone or online.
