Virtual Handicraft Hour featuring quilts from the Frances Willard House Museum’s collections

October 17th, 2021 @ 4:00 PM - 5:00 PM


Quilters take note! On Sunday, October 17 at 4pm Central Time, a special Archives Month edition of Handicraft Hour will highlight handmade patchwork quilts from the Frances Willard House Museum’s collections.

We will discuss how quilts serve as archival documents, works of art, social commentary, and a means of promoting community solidarity. The Willard House holds a remarkable collection of WCTU quilts, including the 1876 “Crusade Quilt” (pictured below), which was made by women in Ohio to commemorate the 1873 Women’s Crusades that led to the formation of the WCTU. The quilt’s center square housed a secret message that was not to be opened for 100 years. Work on your craft project of choice as we explore these unique items of women’s handiwork.

RSVP for this free virtual event here. A Zoom link will be sent shortly before the event to everyone who registers.Gira, which explores the connections between women’s creativity, community, and social change.
