Friday, August 11, 2017
Description: Join World of Quilts Travel to see, enjoy and learn stories behind inscribed quilts during “When Quilts Speak,” August 10-12, at the International Quilt Study Center & Museum in Lincoln, Nebraska. Whether it be to preserve a special memory or for sentimental reasons, in many ways, makers throughout history have left inscriptions of names and words on their quilts.

Programs will include viewing quilts with curators and experts, lectures, and more.
