Quilt Documentation Day

September 1, 2023 11:00am-4:00pm, Wanakena History Center

Quilt Fest attendees are invited to bring their quilts from any time period, machine-quilted, hand-quilted, or tied, to the Wanakena History Center. Quilt historian Hallie Bond will examine, measure, photograph, and collect background data on each piece.


The information collected will help inform the Northern New York Quilt Project (NNYQP), an ongoing effort to document the lives and work of Northern New York women through their quilts. The NNYQP has already produced a major exhibit in Canton, and Bond is presently working on a book on the subject. The data gathered at Quilt Fest will join records of more than 600 quilts and comforters already gathered, and eventually will be entered in the Quilt Index.
