Historic and Contemporary Quilts on display June 30 – July 14, 2012

Log Cabin by Marlene Beeler and Carpenter’s Wheel by Sally McPherson. Just a few of the quilts on display through 14 July.

Update:  Due to overhwelming popular demand, we’re extending show dates through Saturday, 14 July!  We are open Saturdays from 12-4, Monday through Friday from 10-4.  We will also be open Sunday, 7 July, from 1-4.  Thank you for making this show such a rousing success!

As part of the celebration of the city of Carthage’s 175th anniversary, the Hancock County Piecemakers are sponsoring a quilt show at the Kibbe Museum from June 30th – July 8th.

The emphasis of this show is quilts made by loving hands for family and friends. This is your opportunity to view quilts, some of them quite old, and learn something of the stories behind their creation. In contrast to the usual approach of hanging quilts for exhibition, the Kibbe show will display quilts at home among other artifacts of daily life from long ago.

Admission is free.

Museum hours during this event are 1-4 pm Saturday and Sunday, 12-4 on the July 4th holiday, and 10-4 on regular weekdays.
