Portland, ME, December 29, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Each year Sturbridge Yankee Workshop celebrates the start of their winter catalog by announcing big savings on their entire collection of seating and quilts. Customers can keep out the winter chill with coordinating quilted bedding collections in a wide range of colors and styles. Sturbridge Yankee Workshop has a wide selection of quilt collections available in addition to new options sure to quickly become customer favorites this year.
Quilts, layers of fabric filled with padding, have been used for centuries around the world. There are many variations on quilt designs, themes and patterns that can be seen just across state lines in America. In the earliest examples of quilts from Colonial American times, the quilts were crafted to showcase the handicraft prowess of the quilter while also serving as a warm bedcover. It was out of this practice that the many quilt styles developed including, medallion, Broderie Perse, patchwork, and Amish.
Joining the collection of rustic country collections at Sturbridge this year is the Country Star Quilt Collection. Following the success of the same pattern featured on the mini pillow and the matching throw, Sturbridge is now offering the entire collection in the range of standard bedding sizes convenient for customers’ homes. Customers can dress up a current bedroom or make a guest room ready for use with this collection of appealing muted fabrics combined together to create a charming motif of crisscrossing boxes and star shapes.
Sturbridge Yankee Workshop features quilts of varying types from classic toile prints to nature inspired fabrics featuring woodland creatures or scenes from everyday life. Another new quilt collection for Sturbridge this season showcases ferns, butterflies and dragonflies in muted colors of green and brown on a cream background. Vermicelli stitching, common on many quilts, is an alternative to the classic running stitch, which is done in straight lines. Vermicelli is more or less the same as a running stitch, except each stitch is taken in a different direction. It can be a pattern such as a zigzag or completely random, as featured on the Fern Garden Quilt Collection at Sturbridge.
Classic designs featured at Sturbridge Yankee Workshop over the past few seasons are also offered at a discounted price as part of the quilt sale celebration. Anniversary Quilted Collection, celebrating Sturbridge’s 60th Anniversary in 2013, features a combination of deep blue Jacobean print on a French vanilla cream background. Customers can update an entire bedroom, or switch out one piece at a time with coordinating quilt and bedding collections from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop. Current sale prices are effective through February 20, 2014.
