Nationally known quilt authority Merikay Waldvogel will be on hand to give a presentation and analyze quilts that are brought in by their owners. She is the author of Soft Covers for Hard Times: Quiltmaking and the Great Depression and Southern Quilts: Surviving Relics of the Civil War.
Attendees also are invited to view the Mountain Heritage Center’s exhibit focusing on WCU’s 125th anniversary. The exhibit includes a quilt made by Ella Madison, wife of the institution’s first president, Robert Lee Madison.
The presentation is free, but there will be a $5 fee for each quilt analysis, with a maximum of three quilts allowed per person. Proceeds from the event will help support the museum’s mission of helping local residents connect with the history of the region.
