Back by popular demand, donated potholders are sold in the museum store, with the proceeds used to bring new exhibits to the museum. Last year, the potholders brought in over $6,000. No wonder the gift shop has requested that we continue Project Potholder for one more year!

The guidelines are:

  • Make two potholders to be sold as pairs (they do not need to be identical)
  • 6” to 10” in any shape
  • Fabric should be 100% quilt quality cotton
  • Batting should be 2 layers of cotton or wool, or 1 layer of batting plus 1 layer of insulation such as Insul-Bright©
  • Include a hanging loop

Whatever the reason – use up your fabric stash, get together with friends, teach a new person about sewing, or just for fun – be creative!
