Medina Journal-Register — For generations, quilts have told stories, carried on traditions and inspired new designs. Indeed, while quilts can be beautiful to look at, they often have quite a story to tell.
Part of the quilting story will be told at 7 p.m. on Oct. 21 at the Royalton Hartland Community Library when Linda Hunter visits. Hunter will present a program called “Quilts: Past and Present.”
Hunter is a quilter with 35 years of experience. During her program she will discuss the role that quilts have played in the past and in the present. Hunter, who is also a quilt appraiser and a member of the American Quilters Society, will offer information about different types of quilts, quilting techniques, types of quilt pattern designs and how to best care for your quilt. Refreshments will be served courtesy of the Friends of the Library.
The program, which takes place in the Community Meeting Room on the library’s second floor, is free and open to the public. Also included will be information about quilt classes that can be taken with Hunter at various locations around the local area.
Quilt enthusiasts may also enjoy a look at the antique toy sewing machine display in the showcase at the library that is on loan until the end of October from Dolores and Jim Flowers.
For more information about Quilts: Past and Present, call the library at (716) 735-3281 or visit 9 Vernon St., Middleport. Information about this and other programs at the library can be found on the library’s website at www.RoyHartCommunityLibrary.com.
