Quilt Documentation Project
December 3 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm
Members of the public are invited to bring their quilts from any time period, machine-quilted, hand-quilted, or tied, to a quilt documentation day at The Hyde on December 3, 2022.
Quilt historian Hallie Bond will examine, measure, photograph, and collect background data on each piece. The information will help inform the Northern New York Quilt Project, an ongoing effort to document the lives and work of Northern New York women through their quilts. The NNYQP has already produced a major exhibit in Canton, and Bond is presently working on a book on the subject. The data gathered in Glens Falls will join records of more than 600 quilts and comforters already gathered, and eventually will be entered in the Quilt Index.
Free for Hyde members / Free with Museum admission for non-members
