What's in a Name?
Is your family’s name on one of our signature quilts? Come in and find out! Chat with the project researchers.
Signature quilts were made by families, neighbors, churches, schools and organizations like the I.O.D.E., to celebrate events and to raise funds.
For more than five years volunteers and staff have been transcribing the thousands of names that are embroidered on our Perth County signature quilts.
On Saturday, several of the quilts will be on display, and all of the transcriptions will be available to search. This event at the Museum also launches the virtual exhibit on our website where you can see all our signature quilts and search your connections online.
