Biographical / Historical

Eve Wheatcroft-Granick is a quilt researcher and collector, specializing in Amish quilts. Wheatcroft-Granick grew up in Elkins Park, Pennsylvania, and received a B.F.A. from Washington University, St. Louis, and a M.F.A. from the University of Iowa, Iowa City.

Buying and selling Amish quilts led to collecting them and researching how they were produced.
