Fortunately, the definition of African American quilting became broader in the 1980s, ironically enough because of the pioneering work of such women as Dr. Mazloomi herself, along with a number of her contemporaries. The first African American quilting guild was formed as a result of an advertisement placed by Mazloomi in a magazine; nine women responded. Today, the Women of Color Quilter`s Network has approximately 1700 members, some of whom are accomplished artists, speakers, and authors themselves. Similar guilds have since been formed.
Probably the biggest advantage to using an online store for most people is the selection. Quilt racks are a niche product. Unless you can find a store that specializes in them, the selection in the typical store will usually be sparse. If you typically shop at a large discounter like Walmart, there will probably only be a few cheaply-made models available. This is fine if you are primarily looking to save money. But many people don`t like to scrimp on tacky furniture.
As we get into November, even Indian summer is becoming a distant memory. Now, with the last leaves falling off the trees, the weather turning sharply colder, and the holidays approaching, the emphasis seems to be on comfort. Indeed, this is the time when people retreat to the comfort of their homes, and enjoy meals and snacks that feature "comfort foods." It`s also the season when millions, once again, retrieve their comforters from quilt racks, and keep them on their beds, or their favorite easy chairs.
Observe a playground of 3 year olds playing for a few minutes. They are the busiest little independent group of individuals. Each can make you smile, cause you sleepless nights, and give you the most love and joy you have ever experienced in your life. As a quilter, designing a children`s quilt is much like these little ones on the playground. Each of the unique children`s quilts stand alone in a sea of other unique handmade baby quilts, yet all belong to the collection entitled, "Children`s Quilts." The quilter smiles and sews, thinking of the child, who will cuddle under the quilt each night. Yet, those late nights spent making sure the children`s quilt meets with the high expectation of its maker, if not, long hours will be spent until the problem is resolved. But as the quilter adds the last stitches to the finished project, she knows that unique handmade quilt, will become another keepsake to her growing collection of the children`s quilts.
Many manufactures also offer metal quilt racks through online dealers. The brand names along with the pictures and detailed reviews are also presented on the websites. The metal racks are very sturdy and well built with good antique finishes in gold or silver. They also mention other important details such as the number of quilts that it can hold, the weight capacity and instructions for assembling. These come in the form of scrolled ones too, and provide a convenient method of storing.
