Join us for a virtual Members tour of Signature Styles: Friendship, Album, and Fundraising Quilts led by Emelie Gevalt, curator of folk art. The tour will emphasize the quilt as a community activity made visual, documenting group connections through the sewing together of pieces that were crafted and signed by individual quilters.
The tour will be broadcast live on Zoom and begins on Wednesday, April 1st, at 1:00 PM EST. Join here.
