The Museum Center at 5ive Points’ Stitches in Time: Quilting Family Day will feature live quilting demos, a thread making presentation and hands-on activities for the whole family on Saturday.

Members of the Cherokee Blossom Quilt Guild will demonstrate techniques involved in making a quilt:  piecing, applique, embroidery, and quilting.  There will be finished quilts and other projects on display. 

Fiber artist, Patti Caruso, will reveal the process of turning wool and cotton into thread and fabric using raw materials, a spinning wheel and loom. 

“The Museum is excited to be offering this family-focused event,” says Curator of Education Joy Veenstra. “We plan to offer many more events like this for the community to enjoy. Our next Family Day will be related to the upcoming Civil War exhibit in May.”

Quilting Family Day will be held at the Museum Center at 5ive Points Saturday. All activities run from 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Admission is free for members and regular admission for non-members. Admission includes all activities and entrance to the permanent and temporary exhibits.

Quilting Family Day is in concurrence with the exhibit Stitches in Time: Hand Quilting. Sponsored by First Tennessee, this exhibit features 32 hand-made quilts from the region.
