An Afternoon of Quilt Stories
If you love hearing the historical context on patterns and fabric and the stories behind quilts, then you’re going to want to attend our Afternoon of Quilt Stories event on Saturday, January 21 from 3 PM to 4 PM.
Our director, Carissa Heckathorn, will introduce the exhibit and then quilt appraiser, Val Bonk, will tell deeper stories regarding patterns and fabrics for three quilts in the exhibit. With these added details, you will realize how many choices in quilt making are influenced by trends in our society, social changes, and even economic status. This exhibit showcases quilts from different eras and genres encompassing the wider story of quilts.
This is a gallery walk unlike any other we’ve hosted so make sure to save your seat and join us for an informative and rewarding afternoon of storytelling.
