Quilts to Debut at the Winterthur Museum

"Quilts in a Material World: Selections from the Winterthur Museum"

Exhibition: March 10 - September 16, 2007
Conference: March 31, 2007 with workshops and tours on March 30 and April 1

Winterthur's first quilt exhibition will feature approximately 50 quilts, outstanding documents of the history of their time and their makers. They range in date from the 17th to the 19th centuries, but the exhibition is particularly rich in examples from the late 1700s and early 1800s. "Quilts in a Material World" is a unique opportunity to view some of the most outstanding quilts from Winterthur's superb collection.
