The Mary Schafer Collection: A Legacy of Quilt History
Born in Austria-Hungary in 1910 and later immigrating to the United States, Mary Schafer would become one of an important group of women who kept quilting and quilt studies alive between World War II and the 1970s revival of interest in quilts. A resident of Michigan for most of her life, she has long been recognized as one of the forerunners of quilt studies as well as the developer of one of the most important quilt history collections in the country.
