Quilt Discovery: November 11th Members of the public are invited to bring their family quilts to ARTS/West, where quilt and textile experts Ellice Ronsheim and Leslie Floyd will examine them and offer information about their patterns, fabrics, and styles. Quilts should not have been made after 1950 and should have a connection to Athens County, either brought here or made by a resident; we will however look at as many quilts as time allows. For each quilt, a quilt history form will be filled out and a documentation label attached. Contemporary quilts also welcome for documentation. Please call 592-4315 if you plan to attend. This project is sponsored in part by The Athens Municipal Arts Commission and The Ohio Arts Council.

Congratulations if you have made it this far!
