The Wilson Museum will conclude its June theme of friendship, membership and quilts with a quilting bee and potluck supper on Thursday, June 28th from 4 – 7 p.m. in the Main Hall at 120 Perkins Street in Castine.
The June theme was inspired by a friendship quilt with signatures of friends and relatives from the Brooksville area. The Wilson Museum incorporated the idea of a friendship quilt into its spring membership campaign by inviting new and renewing members to sign a quilt square. Since then, members and visitors to the Museum have enjoyed quilt related programming as well as an exhibit which included, not only the Brooksville quilt, but an interactive display inviting participation in choosing a pattern, piecing the squares and creating the Museum’s membership quilt top. It is this membership quilt that the public is invited to help quilt on the 28th. Once completed, the quilt will be used by the Wilson Museum’s Education Department to illustrate the role friendship quilts have played in history. To participate in the quilting bee and potluck supper, please call 207-326-9247 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
