On one Thursday a month, Gerald Roy hosts Quilt Appraisals at Quilted Threads. These appraisals, scheduled by appointment only, are an opportunity for you to have your quilts – antique, old, or new – examined and reviewed by a Certified Quilt Appraiser. Depending on the service you have selected (see descriptions below) you will receive feedback ranging from written legal documents for insurance/sale/donation purposes, to a verbal analysis of “what you have.”

Best known to many of you as the author of the ongoing column “This Old Quilt” in Fon’s & Porter’s Love of Quilting Magazine, Gerald has achieved highest standing in the quilting world. He was born in Worcester, MA, graduated from the School of the Worcester Art Museum, and continued his education at the California College of Art (BFA, Oakland & San Francisco, CA) and Mills College (MFA, Oakland, CA). Internationally known as a quilt collector, historian, artist, and teacher, he was instrumental in establishing the rigorous Quilt Appraisal Certification Program through the American Quilter’s Society, and now serves as Administrator of the program.

Gerald also serves as Chair of the Acquisitions Committee and member of the National Advisory Board of the National Quilt Museum (Paducah, KY), and is on the Acquisitions Board of the New England Quilt Museum (Lowell, MA), where he is a past Executive Board member.

After spending thirty-eight years in Oakland and Oakhurst, CA where he established Pilgrim/Roy Antiques and Interiors, and the Pilgrim/Roy Antique Quilt Collection with the late Paul D. Pilgrim (1942-1996), Gerald returned to New England and resides in Warner, NH. We are very fortunate to have him in our community and to benefit from his rich experience and knowledge.
