Regional Quilt Study Day Was a Virtual Event

​Here are the Highlights

How did the desire for chintz in the 18th and 19th centuries give birth to the Industrial Revolution and make the British the providers by 1860 of half the world’s printed textiles?  How did chintz become “the” status symbol of an age?  This presentation explained the details, showed how massive fortunes were made in the process, and discussed the social ramifications of production of this lovely textile.
