Modern Day Quilting Trends Program

The Door County Historical Society (DCHS) will host its afternoon yesteryear program “Modern Day Quilting Trends,” presented by Leslie Bellais on Sept. 22, 1 pm in the Collins Learning Center at Crossroads at Big Creek in Sturgeon Bay.

Bellais will discuss why quilting became so popular in America, even as it languished in Europe and why there were national quilting trends rather than regional ones. She will present the history of American quilting from the 16th century to 1976.

This special yesteryear program has an admission fee of $10 for guests and $5 for members. Tickets may be purchased in advance by sending payment to the DCHS, PO Box 71, Sturgeon Bay WI 54235. Quilts are on display in both the Warren and Schopf Houses. Heritage Village is open for tours prior to the presentation beginning at 10 am and after the presentation until 3 pm. The Heritage Village and the Collins Learning Center are located at 2041 Michigan Street, Sturgeon Bay. For more information call 920.421.2332 or email [email protected].
