Person Examining Quilt Closely

Learn your quilt's story at Quilt Identification Day. During Quilt Identification Day our trained team of staff and volunteers will examine quilts and offer information about patterns, fabrics, styles and estimated age. We will create a history form and documentation label for each quilt ensuring your quilt’s story is preserved for future generations. Limit two quilts per person per visit. Please sign-up for back-to-back spots if bringing two quilts.

Price: Members $15 per quilt
General: $26 for first quilt (includes the cost of admission) and $20 for the second quilt
