Quilt appraisal event set for Sunday in Union

UNION – Quilt makers and collectors can have their works appraised Sunday at the McHenry County Historical Society.

Crystal Lake quilt appraiser and author Sandy Schweitzer will be on hand at the research library of the museum from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. to give participants an idea of the quilt's construction and history as well as value. The museum is located at 6422 Main St. in Union.

Similar to "Antiques Roadshow," Schweitzer delivers informative and entertaining presentations about the history and style of quilts, according to a release from the McHenry County Historical Society. She has lectured extensively and offers a variety of workshops, which can be found on her website at www.quiltappraisalsplus.com.

For those interested in participating Sunday, historical society leaders are requesting a donation of $30 for a 15-minute appraisal session. There are 12 slots available on a first-come, first-served basis. Pre-payment by check or credit card is required, with all proceeds benefiting the society.

Participants and society members receive free admission to the museum. Non-members pay a small admission charge.

For more information and to reserve a spot, call 815-923-2267.
