quiltExhibit Opening: Mystery Quilt

Wednesday, April 15, 2015
5–7pm
Museum Galleries

Fourteen women signed individual, triangular pieces of fabric in 1890 that were made into a quilt featuring wonderful printed and woven textiles. Who were these women? How did they come together? Why did they make the quilt? Both WINFO (The Women's Information Organization) and the History Club at Martha's Vineyard Regional High School are coming together to research these questions and the women's genealogies to create this exhibit. Because most of the student curators in this case do not sew, the Martha's Vineyard Modern Quilt Guild has promised to shed insight on the quilting techniques of the mystery quilters from days gone by. Join us, and help unveil the exhibit.

Free and open to all
