Stitches in Time: Quilts, 1800-1976
A Webinar with Peggy Norris
Monday, March 1, 2021 at 7:30 pm
American quilts have decorated our beds and kept us warm for two centuries. Peggy W. Norris explores the great variety of quilts from 1800 to 1976, with a special look at quilts made in Bergen County. Get a sneak peek at the quilts to be displayed at the Bergen County Quilt and Coverlet Show.
Peggy W. Norris, better known for her study of local history, has also made a study of American quilts, especially those made in Bergen County. She is a member of the local Brownstone Quilters Guild and of the national American Quilt Study Group and a quilt-maker herself. She and other local historians are planning a quilt and coverlet show for June 11 and 12, 2021, in Ridgewood. There will be an exhibit, special tours and lectures, and an exhibit catalog.
This webinar is free but donations to the Mahwah Museum are very welcome.
