“American Sewn Rugs and the Decorative Arts” by Jan Whitlock

Jan Whitlock started in the antiques business in 1995, after a successful career in textile design and marketing. Her specialty began with textiles of all periods, then narrowing to Folk Art textiles and those of the 18th and early 19th centuries. Jan follows the “good, better, best” principle, and attempts to offer only items in the latter category. Jan Whitlock Textiles has sold to many private collectors, and has placed several items in museum collections; including Winterthur, University of Nebraska Quilt Collection, The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Old Sturbridge Village, The Shelburne Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, The Milwaukee Art Museum, and the DAR Museum.

She has published several articles on textiles, including Embroidered Blankets and Baltimore Album Quilts. American Sewn Rugs: Their History with Exceptional Examples is Jan’s latest publication. Jan recently relocated to New York City, where she continues with private clients and her interior design business.

The Phelps School in Malvern is a unique facility which features accessibility, spaciousness, and natural light that will create the perfect setting for the vendors and all of their antique items. The theme of this year’s event is Recreation, Hobbies and Leisurely Pursuits. The show attracts over 2,000 visitors and collectors every year to view its variety of items and furniture.
