Do you have a special quilt made in Kentucky or owned by a Kentucky resident? Was your quilt made before 1980? Then you should really consider participating in the Kentucky Quilt Registry Program. You will have a perfect opportunity the weekend of March 27th and 28th at the Boyle County Public Library when the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society will be in town to document qualified quilts.
Individuals wishing to have quilts documented are encouraged to make reservations. Reservations will be open beginning Feb. 17th at the Boyle County Extension Office. There is no charge to have quilts documented, but there is a limit of two quilts per person.
The weekend will also include a free presentation by Vickie Coleman on March 26th at 6:30 at the Library. Vickie will explain the differences and similarities between documentation, assessment and judging of vintage and antique quilts. The evening is open to the public and does not require advance reservations.
Individuals interested in volunteering for the registry event may also register at the Boyle County Extension Office beginning Feb. 17th. There are several jobs for volunteers which do not require extensive knowledge of quilts. Training will be provided.
This program is sponsored by the Kentucky Heritage Quilt Society, the Boyle County Extension Office, the Heart of Danville and the Arts Commission of Danville/Boyle County.
