More than two dozen antique quilts will be on display at the Old School Baptist Meeting House, the historic church in the middle of Lewis Park on Main St., Warwick on Sat., Oct. 10 and Sun., Oct. 11 from 12 to 4 p.m. The quilts are part of the Waddell Collection in New Windsor, NY, and the display will show both appliqué and pieced quilts from the 19th century with accompanying handouts providing details of the antique quilts and their makers, if known.
The quilts will be lain across the pews and from the balcony of the stately church building, and photographs are permitted. Entry is $10 per person, $5 for Warwick Historical Society members and for Warwick Valley Quilt Guild members. This program is sponsored anonymously for the benefit of the Warwick Historical Society, a non-profit dedicated to preserving and celebrating the history of the Town of Warwick and its people for over 100 years.
Social distancing and proper personal protective equipment are required. For more information about the antique quilt show or the Warwick Historical Society, visit www.whsny.org or Facebook.com/whsny.org, or call 986-3236.
