Upcoming- Quilt Fun Day – March 16th, 2015 from 8 am – 4 pm. Sounds like fun!
Last June’s meeting featured Gerald Roy – here is some info on the exhibit that is happening in Warner, NH:
In Celebration of Childhood: Doll and Crib Quilts from the Pilgram/Roy Collection
A quilt welcomes a child into the world. Antique quilts are often more valuable when they are small as they are more rare. Therefore, antique doll quilts are highly prized, whether they are made by children or adults. Nostalgia and the romance of times long ago emanate from these small wonders, especially since we know their makers imbued them with love. After all, they were made for the dolls which children used to emulate a mother tending her family.
This unique collection of doll and crib quilts will be on exhibit from November 1 – December 7, 2014 at the Warner Historical Society’s Upton Chandler House Museum at 10 West Main Street in Warner, N.H. Hours of the exhibit are Fridays and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. and Sundays from 1:00 – 4:00 p.m. Admission is $5.00. All proceeds benefit the Warner Historical Society.
Gerald Roy will host a talk entitled, “Ask the Expert: Curious About Your Old Quilt?” beginning at 2:00 p.m. on November 22 at the Warner Town Hall located at 5 East Main Street. The public may bring quilts for Gerald Roy to comment on and about but there will be no written or verbal appraisals. Admission for the talk is $10.00. Quilt commentary requests will be $5.00 per quilt.
Here are the rest of the meeting dates: Nov. 10, Dec. 1, Jan. 5, Feb. 2, Mar. 2, Apr. 6, May 4, and June 1.
Right before our June 2 luncheon, (delish!), we welcomed Gerald Roy, who spoke about his exhibit at the MFA in Boston, “Quilts and Color: The Pilgrim/Roy Collection”. What a wonderful program and the perfect end to this year!
