Our very own Jill Meszaros won runner up viewers choice in the Seaways Trail War of 1812 Bicentennial Quilt Show at Sackett Harbor, NY. Three of our members submitted quilts. You can see Judith Stoll's on Barbara Brackman's blog and Jill's on the Seaway Trails blog. All the quilts were fabulous! We are so proud of our Jill.

Quilts With A Past Day at The Baldwin Reynolds House Museum

Just wanted to share an interesting quilt day event coming up in our area.  This is not an event done through our Quilt Study Group.  Although, several of our members are part of the Textile Conservation Committee at the Museum.  This is sure to be a special day with some wonderful quilts on display.  I will post a picture of the raffle quilt as soon as I have it ready.

Noon until ? (Arrivals start at 11:00)

Have a special vintage quilt you would like to know a little more about? Let our experts help you discover its past. Bring it along and spend a special day at the Baldwin Reynolds House Museum. Attendance will be limited to 40 participants. The day will start with a lunch prepared specially for the event. After lunch, the quilt discovery will begin. Each quilt will be presented to the group and it’s history revealed by our three outstanding experts. Not only will you find out about your treasure but you will get to see 39 other fine quilts that may never be public again. Finally, the day will end with one of our lucky participants winning a full size scrappy Log Cabin quilt made by award winning quilter, Charlotte Newhard.
