On Saturday, May 30, the public is invited to participate in the FACES Quilt Documentation Project from 12pm – 4pm, at the Trinity Lutheran Church, where a written and photographic record of their antique (pre-1950) quilts will be documented.
Documentation requires about 30 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.
A donation of $5 per quilt is requested.
Sponsored by Eastern Shore Heritage, Inc.,
with production support by: Local quilt guilds & FACES Volunteers.
Quilt values will not be appraised.
Pre-registration is recommended to avoid a long wait time.
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.
