Do you own your own Heritage Quilt? The Red Deer Museum and Art Gallery (MAG) is hosting a public Quilt Documentation Day on Friday, October 26th, 2018 from 10 am to 4:30 pm. Lucie Heins, Assistant Curator at the Royal Alberta Museum (RAM), will be conducting the event. This is an opportunity to have your family quilt(s) documented and photographed in order to preserve its history and contribution to Alberta’s quilting history. Lucie will look at the techniques and materials used to make the quilt, and also try to collect as much history about the quilt and quiltmaker as possible. If you own a heritage or family quilt made in Alberta, or as part of the immigrant story to Alberta, it may be a good candidate. Only pre-1970 quilts will be considered at this time, unless a heritage quilt top was finished after 1970.

In order to have your quilt documented by Lucie, you will be required to make an appointment in advance. Appointments are free of charge, but limited spaces for appointments are available. To make an appointment, please contact the MAG’s Front Desk at 403.309.8405. Appointments will take approximately 30 minutes per quilt.

If you would like more information about these events, please contact Kim Verrier, Exhibitions Coordinator at the Red Deer Museum + Art Gallery, at 403.309.8440 or by email, kim.verrier@reddeer.ca.
