April 12 – October, 2014
At the Museum
NMAC will offer this major exhibition of 88 selections from one of the most important private coverlet collections in the country. John Simmermaker, a well-known and respected long-time collector, is making his coverlets available for this exciting event.
Opening weekend will be April 12-13, at which time we will welcome the Colonial Coverlet Guild of America for their 2014 annual meeting. Program schedule and registration form for opening day are available here.
The exhibition will run through the weekend of the September Coverlet College, and perhaps be extended until after the fabled Bedford Fall Foliage weekends in October. Mr. Simmermaker will offer presentations at both the opening CCGA weekend and Coverlet College. This will be a "must-see" exhibition, so plan to attend when you can!
A full color catalog, poster and DVD of this exhibition are now available.
For knitters, spinners, weavers, rug hookers and everyone interested in fiber. This one-day event will include demonstrations, workshops, informal lessons, vendors and more – plus space for folks to bring their work and a chair and “do their thing.” All are welcome to participate or watch.

This will be the third in our series of annual seminars covering both "basic" and "advanced" topics (we use these terms loosely), including hands-on opportunities and a show-and-tell. There is something for everyone, including collectors, researchers and antiques dealers. If you want to know more about coverlets, this is the series for you. And don't be intimidated. We welcome folks at all levels of expertise, or the lack of it. After all, that's why we're here!
