Event Description:
Quilting at the Agency House:  Lecture on  Memory and Album Quilts
Memory quilts are a great way to remember or celebrate family history, the life of a loved one or an important event in your life. Album/Signature quilts became very popular in the mid-1800s. This was around the time families were moving west as pioneers. These quilts were given to their families that they left behind as a memory or for a special occasion. Many included a signature hand quilted at the bottom. Birthdays, weddings, births, deaths and anniversaries were all good reasons for making a memory quilt and allowing the memory of the occasion or loved one to last a little longer. In this lecture and exhibit, we will discuss these beautiful quilts and learn how memory quilts can still be made today. Registration required.
