Join us for a dive into a special look at a selection from our quilt and coverlet collection! Enjoy a box lunch as special guest Merikay Waldvogel will guide us through the stories and unique aspects of our quilt and coverlet collection. After the program, we invite you to stick around for quilt sharing, as participants are encouraged to bring a quilt for Mrs. Waldvogel to share knowledge on the hidden insights regarding the history, age, and importance of your quilt or coverlet.
Tickets are $30 (include box lunch). Please let us know which sandwich you would like when purchasing your ticket.
