Hands On History: Make Your Own Crazy Quilt Square!
April 7 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
A popular pastime 200 years ago, crazy quilts were made from spare scraps of fabric and sewn with fancy stitches, sometimes for fun and sometimes to teach children to sew. Guest artist Risa Puno, whose work is currently displayed on the front lawn of King Manor, will lead the activity and talk about her own work.
Participants will design their own crazy quilt square to take home, then visit the rest of the museum and learn about Rufus King - Founding Father and early voice in the anti-slavery movement.
Recommended for ages 3 and up, adults also welcome!
