Pioneer Quilts: the Untold Stories: History Told through Fabric and Patterns

Nov 19, 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm

Conference Room B Council Bluffs Public Library


Pioneer Quilts: the Untold Stories will engage the audience to look beyond the quilt as just a blanket. Learn the history of pioneers through quilt patterns, fabrics, images and uses of quilts in the daily life of a pioneer.

Pre-register at the Reference Desk to reserve your seat and pick up supplies for two quilt blocks – one for you to keep and one to return to the library. Share a part of your own personal history in the patterns and fabric you choose. All supplies will be provided.

Presented by Teressa Sward, Technical Preservation Specialist, Western Historic Trails Center
