Selvage quilts salvage fabric ‘waste’

Dec 31, 2015
Linda Satkowski will present an illustrated talk on selvage quilts to the Coastal Quilters Saturday morning, Jan. 9, in Camden.

Camden — Linda Satkowski will discuss creating quilts from fabric selvages and bring examples of her work to show at the Saturday, Jan. 9, meeting of Coastal Quilters. Her free presentation will begin at 10 a.m. at the Camden Lions Club Den on Lions Lane, off Knowlton Street. Everyone is welcome.

Selvages are the tightly woven edges of fabric that run the length of a bolt. They do not fray and are usually very colorful. When pieced together, selvages make beautiful graphic quilts or quilted projects.

Satkowski, a retired nurse practitioner, has been quilting for 40 years. She also makes traditional and crazy quilts; and enjoys creating functional art that is lasting and beautiful. She is a member of Coastal Quilters and lives in Camden.

Coastal Quilters, a chapter of the statewide Pinetree Quilt Guild, meets the second Saturday of the month at the Camden Lions Club on Lions Lane. Its purpose is educational and anyone interested in quilting, at any level, is most welcome. Current members represent every type of quilter, from traditional to modern and art quilters.
