QUILT PROGRAM A HUGE SUCCESS

       Pam Weeks, from NH Humanities To Go, presented a fabulous program on "New England Quilts and the Stories They Tell" on Feb. 4 at 2 p.m. in the Wilmot Community Association Red Barn at 64 Village Road, next to the PO in Wilmot.
       Guests were invited to bring a quilt or two for identification or to share their stories. Several quilts were brought to be dated or simply shown as examples of work done in a particular era.
       Pamela Weeks is the Binney Family Curator of the New England Quilt Museum. Author of the book Civil War Quilts and articles on quilt history, she lectures nationally on quilt-making and quilt history. Weeks uses quilts to tell stories of the Civil War, women's history, and industrial history.
