Part of the Special events category.
Part of the program.

Quilt owners are encouraged to bring quilts (limit three per person) made before 2000 to the VHS for a Documentation & Discovery Day. From 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., volunteers from the Virginia Consortium of Quilters will be photographing and recording information about the quilts and their makers for a statewide database kept at the Virginia Quilt Museum in Harrisonburg, Virginia. The group is interested in learning how quilters and quilt styles have changed over time. The emphasis will be on quilts made by Virginians, but all quilts will be recorded. Owners are encouraged to bring information—including unframed photographs—about the quilt maker to be copied.

This event is free and open to the public.
