Celebrate quilts from Mary Kerr's newest book, Twisted: Modern Quilts with a Vintage Twist. This fabulous collection features modern quilts that were created using vintage textiles. Join in the fun as Mary shares her unique approach that gives us permission to play with vintage textiles in new and exciting ways.

She currently lectures and conduct workshops that focus on quilt history and the preservation of antique textiles.
