August 7, 2014 – Suzanne Hardebeck

Lecture: Patriotic and Political Quilts

Suzanne Hardebeck is a quilt collector and professional quilt appraiser. She will be sharing her patriotic and political quilts which include c1870's through modern quilts. Among her favorites to collect are civil war era, World War I and II era and eagle quilts of all ages.

Before retiring from the University of Texas at Brownsville in August 2005, Suzanne was Associate Professor in Management and Department Chairperson of Business Administration. After retirement, she has spent time taking classes in fabric art, traditional, and modern quilt classes, quilt history, and quilt appraisal. Her interests in genealogy and quilts come together as she appraises antique quilts and relates them to the social, economic conditions, and trends of the time—particularly as they affect the lives of women, i.e. temperance movement, African-American quilts, etc.

Suzanne will touch on quilt values and take questions on factors contributing to the monetary value of new, vintage, and antique quilts. Patriotic quilts are always in style. If members of the audience have any quilts of valor or other patriotic themes, please bring them for show and tell.
