The new quilt show will feature a quilt program and related displays at the Stafford County Annex. The doors will open at 11:30 a.m. with several quilt displays and the silent auction for three donated quilts, a queen and two youth/baby quilts.

Those who make quilts or just enjoy quilts are welcome (along with others) to attend the lunch and program and bid on one of these beautiful quilts.

The noon program, “Quilts: Piecing Together History,” will be presented by Marceline Masten, Stafford County Museum quilt project director/curator, and Michael Hathaway, Stafford County Museum director. The museum will share several quilts from its collection for the day.
