About the presenter
Hal­lye Bone made her first quilt in 1967 and has nev­er stopped quilt­ing. Class­es from Robert Bish­op, Cura­tor of the Amer­i­can Folk Art Muse­um and at the St. Louis Art Muse­um taught her how to repair and store quilts. She began to repair quilts for clients and wrote for several

quilt­ing mag­a­zines. A St. Louis native, she spent 12 years in Hous­ton, and taught in six quilt shops there. She stud­ied to become a quilt apprais­er and cur­rent­ly is an apprais­er of quilt­ed tex­tiles, cer­ti­fied by the Amer­i­can Quilter’s Soci­ety. Fas­ci­nat­ed by quilt his­to­ry, she lec­tures, teach­es quilt­ing and embroi­dery, apprais­es quilts, and repairs quilts. She is known for her books: “Car­ing for Your Quilts” and “Flower Dance,” an applique/embroidery book that includes pat­terns for Vic­to­ri­an red­work embroi­dery. Hal­lye tries to piece and quilt every day and enjoys the won­der­ful quil­ters she has met in her forty year career. 


A silent auc­tion fea­tur­ing nine quilts will be held begin­ning April 3 and will con­clude on April 13. The quilts on auc­tion were donat­ed to ben­e­fit the Camp­bell House Muse­um and are from the col­lec­tion of Lynn Isen­berg.
