This one-day forum explores the creation, history, interpretation and care of whole cloth and pieced quilts. Click here to view and download a information and registration form. Join Linda Eaton, Director of Collections and Senior Curator of Textiles at the Winterthur Museum, and Historic Deerfield staff for an insightful look into this decorative, practical and symbolic form of needlework. This day-long event will take place in Historic Deerfield’s White Church Community Center and the Flynt Center of Early New England Life, and will feature examples from Historic Deerfield’s own outstanding collection. Participants will also have the opportunity to view quilts in the historic setting of the Wells-Thorn House. Eaton will sign copies of her recent book, Quilts in a Material World: Selections from the Winterthur Collection.
