[ARCHIVED] History Of Quilting And Modern Quilts


Are you a fan of quilting or just interested in learning more about this unique art form? Then join us at the Woodbridge Main Library on March 22nd at 7 PM for a fascinating presentation by professional quilter Gail Thompson! 

Gail will take us on a journey through the rich history of quilting, starting from its early beginnings in the 1830s all the way up to the present day. We'll explore major events in history such as the American Civil War, the Great Depression, and World War II, and how they influenced the evolution of quilting. Gail will even bring some of her own beautiful quilts for us to admire and appreciate. 

But that's not all! During the presentation, we'll also learn about the migration westward in the mid-19th century, the Singer Sewing Machine's role in revolutionizing quilting, and even the history of handwork that women enjoyed throughout the years. We'll also discover how quilt blocks helped slaves escape through the Underground Railroad.

This event is a unique opportunity to learn about the fascinating history of quilting and its evolution over time. So, register now to reserve your spot and join us for a fun and informative evening with Gail Thompson! 

Registration is required, so be sure to sign up here or call 732-634-4450.
