Event Description

Calling all quilts and the people who love them! Help us save the stories in the stitches by bringing your precious family heirlooms (or modern creations) to Documentation Day at the WMQFA’s farmstead. For just $5, we will record the history of the quilt, create a detailed description, take a digital image, and save this information in our archives.

We will include your quilt in an online database, the Quilt Index (www.quiltindex.org), where it can be accessed and studied for years to come, at no charge. Our trained volunteers can tell you when and how your antique quilt was made, and give suggestions on proper care and storage.

Please make an appointment in advance by emailing Sylvia at piecethepast@att.net.
