Roesia Merle Quilt Display September 02nd, 2017 - 08:29:40
Just because it`s called a "quilt" display rack doesn`t mean that its use is limited to such items. Quilt racks would also be useful as in-store displays to advertise latest store deals, services, and products. You could also use these to hang curtains, which could then be use to surround your exhibitor space. Teachers can even use these to feature class artwork projects or as teaching aids. Photographers are also fond of using these to hold their background graphics during their outdoor pictorial sessions.
For example, the soft baby flannel that may be used in the piecing of a clown`s hat may evoke memories of a toy that the quilter`s son once played with in the nursery. The soft pink cotton that once was the out grown nightgown of a clumsy toddler is now the ballerina`s skirt in a children`s quilt of a graceful little girl, who grew up and now loves to show her Mommy how much she loves to dance, instead of crawling around the house. Or the blue jean train on the newly finished children`s quilt which was once a little boy`s first pair of dungarees. Tonight, when he goes to bed, and hugs his handmade children`s quilt, the story can be told again about the little train on that special children`s quilt, a keepsake for years to come, with a story to tell.
Well, it is quite hard to attract a crowd if you`ll just place your quilts on the floor - visitors wouldn`t be able to see your quilt collection from a distance. And it wouldn`t really help if you`ll just tape them on the wall - it might come off as very unprofessional and messy. That`s why portable quilt racks are highly recommended to use in trade show exhibits because they keep everything in orderly fashion and easy for both the exhibitor and potential customers.
This will probably be the best option if you are looking to preserve your quilt. But this simply means you will not be able to enjoy it all. What`s the point of having a quilt if it`s going to be stashed away where it cannot be seen or used? This is why many quilt owners eventually by a rack to store it on. With an official piece of furniture to place it own, family members will be more respectful. And just as important, you will be able to display it in whatever room you please.
