Billings Farm & Museum, gateway to Vermont’s rural heritage, will host its 32nd Annual Quilt Exhibition from July 28 through September 16,
10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. featuring quilts made by Windsor County quilters.
The exhibition will include quilting activities and demonstrations for every age and skill level, with quilters on hand to discuss their work. Challenge quilts made by the Delectable Mountain Quilt Guild will also be exhibited. A quilt challenge requires specific design and construction rules agreed upon by guild members, with the goal of improving their quilting skills.
For over three decades, Billings Farm & Museum has played a significant role promoting and encouraging the quilting tradition in Windsor County. Still considered both a creative and utilitarian household craft, renewed interest in the tradition dovetails with the museum’s mission of celebrating Vermont’s rural heritage. Since 1985, over 280 quilters have submitted more than 1,000 quilts for exhibit at the Farm & Museum.
Admission to Billings Farm & Museum's 31st Annual Quilt Exhibition includes the operating dairy farm, orientation and farm life exhibits, the restored and furnished 1890 Farm House, plus daily programs and activities. Guests of the Woodstock Inn & Resort receive free admission.
The Billings Farm & Museum is owned and operated by The Woodstock Foundation Inc., a charitable non-profit institution. For further information: 802/457-2355 or www.billingsfarm.org.
