Amory Museum plans 2013 quilt exhibit
AMORY – The Amory Regional Museum has scheduled its annual quilt exhibit from January through March. The display has been an annual event for about 30 years, and is the museum’s most popular exhibit.
“The quilt exhibit is a wintertime event for our museum. We had approximately 40 quilts in the exhibit this year and would like to have even more next year,” said Bo Miller, museum director.
The museum is looking for any style quilt to include in the exhibit. Miller said they did not have to be old, but could be recently completed.
A quilt from the 1850s is included in the museum’s collection. Some of the types of quilts that have been on display are a quilt made out of ties and also t-shirts.
“We are also looking for unusual quilts – the more unusual, the better,” Miller said.
The museum would also like to have other needlework to include in the exhibit.
For more information, call the museum at 256-2761.
