Standing Rock Quilt hangs in the entrance. The story for this quilt " Made by a Women's Club in Standing Rock, AL in 1918 to raise funds for the Red Cross' service to soldiers and their families during WW 1. Citizens paid to have their names embroidered on signature blocks and the quilt was raffled. Five year old Rip Bonner won the raffle. The quilt has been in the Bonner family every since and has been loaned to the Southeastern Quilt & Textile Museum by Robert Bonner of Carrollton." Come see this unique quilt along with many other old quilts and their stories. Grand Opening this Saturday September 9th from 10:00 to 2:00. Gallery talk at 11:00.

 Sacred Threads Exhibition- April 5th, 2018 to June 30th, 2018

The Southeastern Quilt and Textile Museum is proud to announce that it will host the Sacred Threads Exhibition of Quilts Expressing Life’s Journey: Joy, Inspiration, Healing, Grief, and Peace. In 1999, Sacred Threads Founder, Vikki Pignatelli, gathered a small group of women who felt that their quilts had been misrepresented in quilt shows in the past. Their spirituality had inspired their quilts and quilt shows had been reluctant to feature them. The Sacred Threads exhibit was created to feature these quilts who touch upon both the personal and spiritual levels and is now a national touring exhibit. Museum visitors can glimpse into the spiritual  journey of each of these quilters. The exhibit features a MP3 guided tour for each quilt.
