Documents quilts at fest

ARTHURDALE — Owners of quilts made before 1970 can document them for future generations at the Arthurdale New Deal Festival, on July 14. The West Virginia Quilt Documentation Project is sponsored by West Virginia Quilters Inc., in collaboration with the West Virginia Division of Culture and History.

Volunteers will examine the quilts and record facts about them and the quilters who made them, as well as photograph them. The information will be stored in the archives of the Division of Culture and History in Charleston and a national online database, quiltindex.org.

Documentation is free, but appointments should be made for between 10 a.m.-3 p.m. There is a limit of two items per person.

To make an appointment, contact Kathy Opel, at Kopel@yahoo.com or 304-329-1287.
