New England Quilts and the Stories They Tell

April 7 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

The Keep Homestead Museum opens for the season on April 7, 2024 with the program “New England Quilts and the Stories They Tell.”

Do you have an old quilt hanging around your house? Maybe it is a family heirloom or a find from a tag sale. You may want to come to the Keep Homestead Museum, 35 Ely Road in Monson, MA when it opens for the season on Sunday, April 7, 2024 and learn more about it.

Pamela Weeks, researcher, author, and curator of the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell, MA, will be presenting her program “New England Quilts and the Stories They Tell”. Quilt history is full of myths and misinformation as well as tales of service and tradition. Pam weaves world history, women’s history, and wonderful stories into her presentation.

Attendees are invited to bring one quilt for identification and/or story sharing. Pam will have copies of her books for sale.

This program starts at 1:30pm and is open to the public free of charge though donations are welcome. The museum is open for viewing of new displays from 1–3:30pm. The Friends of Keep Homestead Museum meeting will take place after the Open House.
