Experienced quilters and novices alike will enjoy this unique opportunity to experience these historic quilts firsthand. Join us on Thursday, November 16, from 6:30 to 8:00 PM for a special behind-the-scenes look at the quilts of Windsor Historical Society with Curator Kristen Wands. The Society’s beautiful and varied quilts are rarely exhibited but will be made available especially for program participants.

Quilts selected for this program range in date from the 1850s to the mid-20th century and include a variety of styles including a Grandmother’s Flower Garden, a Mariner’s Compass, and an album quilt signed by the members of First Church. The Society has a particularly strong collection of crazy quilts and log cabin variations, some in sumptuously embroidered silks and velvets, others in scraps of cotton prints. One even has a backing made from old salt bags. The quilts represent the handwork of many generations of Windsor women, and we’ll get to know a bit about some of the quilters, too!

$5. Registration required by Tuesday, November 14; limit 30 participants. Gloves will be provided.
