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 and 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 June 12 and will conclude on July 3. The quilts on auction were donated to benefit the Campbell House Museum and are from the collection of Lynn Isenberg. More details to come.
