A Closet Full of Quilts

The Museum Society will be hosting a special exhibit featuring the quilts of Christina Rutherford. This exhibit will be
accompanied by quilts the Society has received within the last ten years.
Illinois and Vermilion County have a rich quilting history. Whether made for utilitarian purposes, to commemorate an event, or
for pure enjoyment of the art, residents of the county have been quilting for almost 200 years.

This exhibit will be open during regular Museum hours and the cost is $3.00 per adult.
If you are a Museum member, this exhibit is free.
