Barn quilts have become one of the many attractions in Door County. How and why did they get started? Do they have a meaning? Where are they? These are just a few of the questions that will be covered at the Jacksonport Historical Society’s (JHS) presentation on May 25 at 7 pm at the Jacksonport Town Hall on County V in Jacksonport.
Dawn VandeVoort, 4-H Youth Development Coordinator with the Door County UW-Extension office, will begin with an overview of the Door County Barn Quilt Project. The program will continue with information from many of the quilt owners, including history and stories about the Jacksonport barn quilts. Guests are encouraged to bring stories, photos and heritage quilts to share.
Refreshments will be served after the program. Admission is free but a donation is greatly appreciated.
Don’t forget to stop by the JHS booth at the Erskine Root Cellar and the Loritz Cabin during Maifest in Jacksonport.
