A Quilt Top with Ties to Dryden
Speaker: Anita Loscalzo
Thursday – July 14, 2022 – 7PM (Doors open at 6:30 PM)
Dryden United Methodist Church – 9 East Main Street, Dryden
The quilt top was found several years ago at a flea market in Massachusetts by a member of a local quilting club and displayed at a club meeting. The quilt top is embroidered with over fifty names dating from 1846 – 1849; all from Tompkins County and most from Dryden. Anita Loscalzo, also a club member, became fascinated and wanted to learn more about the people whose names adorned the quilt. After convincing her friend to part with the quilt top, Anita began extensive research into the origins of the quilt and is excited to present her findings as well as theories as to why it was created.
The Dryden Town Historical Society invites everyone to join us on Thursday, July 14th, at 7 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM) in the Dryden United Methodist Church to learn more about this piece of history. Quilts from the DTHS collection will also be on display.
As always, this program is free and open to all with donations gratefully accepted. For more information call: (607) 898-3461.
