Thu JUN 05.14 | 10:00 am – 4:00 pm

Do you have family quilts? Were they made in Alberta or brought as part of the family’s migration to Alberta? The Alberta Quilt Project has begun Phase II documenting heritage quilts. Have your family quilts (pre-1970) documented and photographed as part of Alberta’s quilt history.

We have 7 spots available - please call to make an appointment:

Leslie: 403.320-4700 through JUNE 1

Wendy: 403.320-3907 after JUNE 1

 

If possible, please bring biographical information about the quilt maker. You will be asked about the availability of quilt-related items such as patterns and templates, diaries, scrapbooks and photographs. The process will take about 60 minutes from arrival to departure.
