NATIONAL QUILTING DAY 2018

March 17, 9 - 4

The 9th annual National Quilting Day event at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln is scheduled for Saturday, March 17 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will be celebrating the 10th anniversary of Quilt House and the 45th anniversary of the Lincoln Quilters Guild.  Visitors to this FREE community event will enjoy free museum admission and tours of the current exhibitions, plus demonstrations, lectures and displays planned just for this day.  Lunch will be available for guests who want to spend the entire day at the Quilt House. Free parking is available in all University parking lots north of Quilt House, at 33rd & Holdrege, and across 33rd at Hardin Hall (including restricted lots).  We encourage guilds or shops to get a group together and sponsor a bus to bring friends to Lincoln to attend.  Last year, Sue Brown brought a group from Hastings to enjoy the day!

We will offer our always popular Lectures.  You may choose to attend either the morning or the afternoon sessions, as both will have identical offerings. Lecture topics include: So I got it pieced, now what? by Kris Vierra (aka Quilter on the Run), the Made by Hand quilt exhibition by Lydia Newman, Creating the Unique by Dorothy Heidemann-Nelson and Carolyn Ducey on the Ken Burns’ quilt exhibition.  Sit down, relax and enjoy this year’s informative programs!  

The entire family can take part in a quilt block making activity, “Love of Everyday Things.”  Guests can learn about Modern Quilting from the Lincoln Modern Quilt Guild’s display, “That’s Modern.”  There will be handwork demonstrations featuring techniques seen in quilts exhibited in the galleries.  Habitat for Humanity will be our featured community outreach program.  Come and see wonky houses incorporated into wallhangings that will be gifted to each new Habitat homeowner.  Guild members will demonstrate and show quilts featuring string piecing with a modern twist.  Have your picture taken with our "Photo Frame!"  Collection Care in Action will be featured in our Conservation Workroom where guests can learn from volunteers and staff how the museum cares for textiles.

What's new in the quilting industry?  AccuQuilt, Aurifil & Handi Quilter, as well as local shops Cosmic Cow, Craft House and Sew Creative, will have all the latest machines and products for you to see.

Guests can tour the quilt exhibitions in the galleries:  Uncovered: The Ken Burns Collection, Eiko Okano’s Delectable World, Velda Newman’s Panorama, Made by Hand: Quilts from 1760-1870, Binding Threads: James Family collection, McKenzie Phelps: Silhouettes and quilts by UNL employees.
We hope that you will make plans to attend National Quilting Day 2018!
