Coverlet College

September, 25-26-27, 2015
At the Museum

This will be the fourth 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, antiques dealers, and just regular folks.  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!

The 2015 dates for Coverlet College have been confirmed. Please note that for 2015 we’re adding NEW workshop opportunities on Friday and a dinner on Saturday evening.  Both will be optional for attendees.

The new 2015 schedule will be posted ASAP.
