Family, History, and Art found in American Quilts
Susan Jerome, Collections Manager at the University of Rhode Island Historic Textile and Costume Collection, explored the ways in which quilts are a part of American culture and folklore. Definitions and ideas about quilts were also discussed.
Audience members brought family heirlooms and Ms. Jerome helped to identify their fabrics and type. Tips on the proper care and preservation of these treasures were also presented.
