Quilt Documentation Project

Saturday, August 3rd
12:00pm – 4:00pm
At The Fretterd Center

A written and photographic record of your treasured quilt.

On Saturday, August 3rd, fiber art demonstrations will take place at FACES from 10am to 12pm, after which, the public is invited to participate in the FACES Quilt Documentation Project from 12pm – 4pm, at the Fretterd Center, where a written and photographic record of their antique (pre-1950) quilts will be documented. Documentation requires about 20 minutes per quilt for measuring, photographing, dating fabric, identifying patterns, and recording the quilt history. FACES will maintain this information in a database in order to preserve the legacy of quilt making, recognize its heritage, and share its story. Every quilt will be given a documentation tag, and quilt owners will be able to access their information on the website via an identification number.
Quilt values will not be appraised.
Pre-registration is recommended to avoid long wait times.
Walk-ins will be accommodated as time allows.
You must register separately for each quilt you would like to have appraised, up to 2 per person.
Please be on time for your appointment.
Please note that you must register for this activity separately from your other FiberFest event registrations below. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
