Van Horsen, Gail
Gail Van Horsen's love of quilts comes from the family quilts that were at her grandmother's house as a child. She loved to pick her favorite for her bed when spending the night. Her first quilt was made at age 8 and was a doll quilt for her little sister. Gail has quilted now for over 60 years and enjoys making all types of quilts. Her interest in quilts took her to appraising and she became an AQS Certified Appraiser in 2010. She is currently serving as president of the Professional Association of Appraisers- Quilted Textiles. She also enjoys lecturing on quilt history and presenting her quilt collections to guilds and quilt groups. Her largest collection is Double Knit Polyester Quilt, followed by Crib Quilts from the 20th Century.
