For this month’s Special Saturday, you’re invited to be part of the long legacy of contributing to a friendship quilt.
Friendship quilts gained popularity in the 1840s. Made with scraps and inscribed with the names of friends and family, friendship quilts provide a unique view into the history and culture of American women and their communities.
For this program, guests can enjoy a 30-minute friendship quilt history talk at 10 am and again at 12:30 pm in the Academy Chapel. Guests can participate by simply signing a quilt square which will be sewn into a quilt, or design and make your own square! Volunteers from Enchanted Rose Emporium Quilt Shop, located in the Academy, will be ready to help.
All quilts created during this program will be donated to local veterans.
Thanks to our sponsor, Columbia Credit Union, this program is free to attend.
