Quilting with mens Neck Ties

Neck Ties have a very long history, having first been identified in use by the Chinese in 221BC. There is much evidence that ties of all sorts have been in and out of fashion since that time. Any portrait of kings such as Charles I, and King Louis XIV of France will show the popularity of this fashion accessory.

With the advent of the ďfrugal financial phaseĒ upon us at present, the use of recycled materials is becoming very popular. To that end, menís ties are now being snapped up in Opportunity Shops and at Charity Stalls all over the world. These silken, luscious items make great additions to the crazy quilts and art quilts alike.

So what can you do with a mans tie? Iíve had a long surf over the net and have come up with a number of ideas (mostly free) for you to consider. Enjoy!
