Have your Quilt documented:

Stitches in Bloom Quilt Show 2011 will have the Oregon Quilt Project present at the Show to document your quilts. The Oregon Quilt Project is devoted to preserving and documenting the history of quilts, quilt makers of the past and present from all over Oregon.

The process of quilt documentation takes approximately 30-45 minutes each, and requires all those who wish for their quilt to be documented to schedule appointments before hand.

A total number of two quilts are allowed to be documented. All quilt owners are requested to bring their quilts to the Education Building which is near the Visitor Center or entrance to the Garden between 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday, the 29th of January 2011.

Appointments can be made by contacting Bill Volckening at williamvolckening@comcast.net or by calling 503-327-3202.
