What is International Quilt Day
In 1989, the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society organized a “Quilters’ Day Out” on the third Saturday of March to celebrate the rich tradition of quiltmaking in Kentucky. In 1991, National Quilting Association officers were so enthused with the concept and success of “Quilters’ Day Out” that they voted to take it to a national level.
The first National Quilting Day was observed in 1992 and since then it has grown into a global celebration for all quiltmakers and quilt lovers. Helen Storbeck, one of the founders of National Quilting Day, wrote in The Quilting Quarterly, “Groups of quilters were encouraged to hold special events, publishers and shop owners were invited to sponsor promotions especially for quilters and it quickly became a grassroots endeavor with quilters in every part of the country participating. In the first year of National Quilting Day, quilters in other countries asked to participate. They were welcomed with open arms.
As our feelings of a community network has evolved to include a world community, it is only appropriate that quilters and quilt lovers everywhere united to give recognition to the special art form.”
With its ability to distribute Easy Press Fabric Treatment evenly, the lightweight and easy-to-hold sprayer eliminates the need for constant squeezing, giving arthritic hands a much needed break.
The sprayer is rechargeable using a USB outlet, making it a convenient option for on-the-go use.
The Easy Press Fabric Treatment renews fabric after pre-washing and drying, improving accuracy when cutting and sewing while adding volume and inhibiting fraying. Regular use after each wash helps resist stains, making it a great alternative to starch or starch alternatives.
Fill the sprayer with water and it can also be used for alternate purposes such as blocking crochet and knitting projects, misting plants, or keeping cool in warmer months.
