Join us for an evening of quilting history!

Did you know that quilting did not always involve sewing together tiny pieces of colored cloth to make lovely designs, as was the exquisite quilt made for the wedding of Hugh and Martha Anderson in 1869 (shown above)?

Presented by DLM member and Quilt Shop owner, Kimberly Chaffee, you will hear an overview of quilting through the ages, before delving into the types of quilts which might be found in a Colonial home. Kim will also discuss how quilts helped to promote community and friendhip in Colonial Communities.

Visit the Depreciation Lands Museum for an exciting and informative evening with the warmth of quilts!
