Twas The Night Before Christmas Quilt Exhibit
December 2 @ 12:00 pm - 4:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 12:00 pm on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until January 13, 2024
Curated by quilt historian, Sue Reich from Washington Depot, Conn., the exhibit features miniature quilts that have been made to interpret stanzas from Clement C. Moore’s poem, ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas”, penned 200 years ago as a gift for his children on December 24th. Ten generations of children have been charmed by this magical poem of the gift of Saint Nicholas. The poem’s 28 stanzas were chosen by quilt historians and artists to recreate their special Yuletide memories of childhood.The challenge was to incorporate a miniature quilt within the larger quilt. May these quilts bring smiles and cherished memories of your own special Christmases and inspire you to keep quilts in Christmas!
November 1st through January 13th during gallery open hours
