New licensed textiles from Winterthur collection

Andover Fabrics has been a licensee of Winterthur since 2008. Andover Fabrics began in 1920 as a small office in downtown Manhattan that sold velvet cloth to the women’s hat trade. Today, the company is run by the grandson of the founder and continues to sell fabric but as an independent company devoted to the quilt trade.

Inspired by designs found in the vast textile collection at Winterthur, Andover’s Winterthur Collection offers quilters the opportunity to work creatively with beautiful patterns that reflect the quality and authenticity of the museum’s collection. The new collection of quilting fabrics is based on the late 18th-century John Hewson coverlet in Winterthur's textile collection. It consists of nine patterns in multiple colorways.
