Ply. Co. Museum plans Vintage Quilt Show

Thursday, August 9, 2018

If you own a quilt that is at least 40 years old and has a connection to Plymouth County, you are needed now.

The Plymouth County Historical Museum in Le Mars will be hosting a Vintage Quilt Show the first week in October and is now identifying quilts for display. The historic show will be in the Museumís 1905 Study Hall as a part of the Le Mars Fall Fest.

All vintage quilts need to be delivered to the Museum by Sept. 5. The quilts will be on loan to the Museum for a few weeks. Each person will be limited to two quilts.

Anyone who has questions about the show may contact the Museum at 539-0223. Margaret Henrich, a Museum volunteer and former registrar, is chairing the quilt show.

The Museum is located at 335 First Avenue Southwest in Le Mars. Museum staff and volunteers will help anyone needing to unload quilts. An informational form must be filled out by each quilt owner in the Museumís Welcome Room.
