Gloria Nixon and her husband Roger live in the Flint Hills of rural Wabaunsee County, Kansas.

That’s how she found her first dress print bags some ten years ago. She also collects Kansas City Star patterns and old quilt ephemera. Gloria is a quilt history researcher who especially enjoys studying individuals and the contribution each made to quilt history. She is a member of the American Quilt Study Group (AQSG), the Iowa Illinois Quilt Study Group (IIQSG), and the Feedsack Memories discussion group. Her articles appear in Pieces of Time: A Quilt and Textile History Magazine.

  1. Gloria,
    I also collect old Kansas City Star quilt patterns. I have a large surplus of duplicates that I plan to sell eventually, but was wondering if you also had extras and might be interested in trading. Look forward to hearing from you!

  2. Hi Cathy,
    Yes, I do have extras. Some are loose and others are glued on old cardstock type paper. Feel free to send a list of the ones you need to, and I’ll try to help.
    It’s great to meet another Kansas City Star pattern enthusiast!
