Julie Silber & Rod Kiracofe are ~swimming~ in antique/vintage quilts and they’d like to move them along to new homes!
Not all the quilts are in perfect condition so they will definitely be priced *to sell*. C’mon by! This a perfect opportunity to pick up wonderful handmade pieces by the makers who came before us.
* 100+ quilts & tops, dating from 1830 to 1980
* Items starting at $15 and nothing over $500 -- many in the $50 to $200 range!
* Blocks, fabric, our books & more
* Cash, checks, & credit cards will be accepted -- 10% discount if paid in cash
ABOUT THE LOCATION:
Julie Silber’s studio, located inside of Makers Workspace in the Gilman District of Berkeley. www.makersworkspace.com houses 43 separate studios for all types of creatives- some of whom will have their studios open. Makers is handicap accessible, has 2 restrooms onsite, and parking is street parking only (you should be able to find a spot within a couple of blocks). Located literally next door to Fieldwork Brewery if your quilt shopping works up a thirst for craft beer, and near enough to the 4th Street shops/restaurants if you feel like exploring more.
