Info

Exhibit showcases the resourcefulness and frugality of early 19th-century quiltmakers, who used remnants from worn garments and household textiles to create new quilts, or interwove fabrics of sentimental value, or even turned worn-out quilts into practical household objects.

Visitors to the exhibit will gain an appreciation for the art of quilt making in early New England, and learn about the culture that gave rise to these ingenious designs. "Early New England Quilts: Repurposed, Refashioned, and Reused" is included with general admission to Old Sturbridge Village, and is open during the museum's hours. Special tours and programming related to the exhibit will be offered during "Textile Weekend" taking place at the Village on August 18-19.
