If our history section is any indication, the Civil War is a subject of great interest to people, and if our quilt section is any indication, there is also a great interest in quilts and quilting. If you find yourself interested in both topics, then head down to Lexington, MA on Saturday for a lecture at the Museum of Our National Heritage entitled, "Quilts for Civil War Soldiers: Stories from the Home Front and the Battlefield."
New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA. Ms. Weeks will tell the stories behind three rare Civil War quilts. This lecture is free to the public.
"Elm Creek Quilts" series writer, Jennifer Chiaverini, has a novel about the Civil War, The Union Quilters [F CHI], "a Civil War-era tale of love and sacrifice behind Union lines."
Just a reminder, we have a museum pass to the New England Quilt Museum. It was made possible through proceeds from the Nesmith Library Quilters Group annual quilt raffle. To book the pass, click here.
