A program on the history and traditions of quilt making will be presented at Anoka County’s Rum River Library Saturday, Jan. 12, 2 p.m.
Program participants will find out the real stories behind the history of quilt design and construction.
Many color photos of antique quilts are part of the presentation.
“Quilts are so much more than just blankets and bedspreads,” said Anoka County Library Board Vice President Cathy Montain.
“They often represent family history and are full of memories.”
This historical look at quilts is sponsored by the Anoka County Library and is presented by the Anoka County Historical Society.
This program, which is free and open to the public, is funded with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund. For more information, call 763-576-4695 or visit a local library or the website at anokacountylibrary.org.
