Quilting Party



Years ago, quilting bees provided the women of a community the opportunity to meet together to share stories and experiences, swap recipes and sewing tips, and to offer support and friendship. Every year at Ross Farm Museum we hold a quilting bee of our own that allows people to come out and join in on the experience of quilt making.

Joyce Hiltz, Garden and Costume Manager has been working at the museum for almost 40 years and is a wealth of knowledge when is comes to many skills such as quilt making. In this video she explains a about the process and the history behind quilt making while she works on one here at the museum.
