Bed Turning Program Schedule

What is a Bed Turning?

What is a Bed Turning?  A bed turning is a mini quilt history program.  Vintage and newer quilts are layered on a bed.  The story of the top quilt is told and when the speaker is done, the quilt is folded back to reveal the next quilt and so on until all of the stories have been told.  Quilt Historian Catherine Noll Litwinow will be comparing the quilts, old and new.


All day both days
