Do you have a quilt at home that is special to you, maybe even made by your ancestors? Join us for an evening of community where participants will share their special quilt, personal and family histories and stories. We will also have local quilt historian and appraiser, Alice McElwain, who will provide historical context about the fabric in your quilt and when it was made as well as  other exciting discoveries! Once everyone has shared, we will photograph your quilt and document your quilt's story where it will then be turned into a Risograph printed zine for all of us to keep and enjoy! 

Quilt Show & Share is a program in partnership with the Arts One Presents Barn Quilt Project, a celebration of identity & place in Springdale, Arkansas. Through various community engagement activities, the Barn Quilt Project aims to highlight places of cultural importance & celebrate Springdale’s intercultural identity.
