Quilt Display / September 1, 2018 / Voletta.
In olden days pioneer families that braved the hostile westward trails in hopes of finding new land and new lives had to stock up on supplies as they prepared for their journeys. They needed provisions that would not only assist with their safe passage but would help them to survive when they reached their destinations. Along with several months` worth of food ammunition and clothing it was recommended that every family pack enough bedding to last for a few years with two or three quilts or blankets per person.
Just because it`s called a "quilt" display rack doesn`t mean that its use is limited to such items. Quilt racks would also be useful as in-store displays to advertise latest store deals services and products. You could also use these to hang curtains which could then be use to surround your exhibitor space. Teachers can even use these to feature class artwork projects or as teaching aids. Photographers are also fond of using these to hold their background graphics during their outdoor pictorial sessions.
Many manufactures also offer metal quilt racks through online dealers. The brand names along with the pictures and detailed reviews are also presented on the websites. The metal racks are very sturdy and well built with good antique finishes in gold or silver. They also mention other important details such as the number of quilts that it can hold the weight capacity and instructions for assembling. These come in the form of scrolled ones too and provide a convenient method of storing.
Fortunately the definition of African American quilting became broader in the 1980s ironically enough because of the pioneering work of such women as Dr. Mazloomi herself along with a number of her contemporaries. The first African American quilting guild was formed as a result of an advertisement placed by Mazloomi in a magazine; nine women responded. Today the Women of Color Quilter`s Network has approximately 1700 members some of whom are accomplished artists speakers and authors themselves. Similar guilds have since been formed.
