Special Exhibit

Queen City Quilts

Queen City Quilts web   

Currently featured in the Henry M. Fuller State Theatre Gallery in the Millyard Museum is "Queen City Quilts", an exhibition featuring some of the treasures of the Manchester Historic Association's textile collection.  The quilts in the collection span three centuries and are a unique vehicle for telling the stories of textile manufacturing in Manchester, the quilt makers as members of the workforce, and their communities.

One of the quilts featured is a friendship crazy quilt made by the Ladies of the First Congregational Church for Miss Mary Dana. Her role first as Parish Visitor and then as assistant to the pastor, made her a much loved and respected member of the church which is reflected in the quilt, purported to be made of fabrics from dresses worn by the ladies to functions at the church.  Many of the squares are initialed by the makers and lovingly embellished with fine needle work.  Other quilts include fabric scraps brought home by workers from the local mills, and one is of linen and wool likely grown, spun and woven here in the area. 

On exhibit through October 21
