ROCKY MOUNTAIN QUILT MUSEUM TRUNK SHOW @ 1:00
Included in general admission! Join us at 1:00 to learn about symbolism and the language of flowers contained in most crazy quilts of the Victorian Age from the Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum. Unlike the previous generation—women who made quilts for warmth and utility—Victorians made quilts that only had to be beautiful. As women of leisure, they had time to study art and fancy needlework, and they used this new quilt style to demonstrate their skills. Several great examples of Crazy Quilts will be shown from the museum’s Educational Collection. Program is approximately 60 minutes.
We will have a few fun activities and will add them as they are confirmed. Check back soon!
CONFIRMED VENDORS (more to come)
