The Heidelberg Busy Bee Quilt – Curator Talk

In 1895-6, a sewing group from the Scots Presbyterian Church in Heidelberg got together to create a ‘signature quilt’ as a fundraising activity. In 2018 it came into the care of Heidelberg Historical Society.  Who are the people whose signatures are on the quilt? Why are there signatures from Williamstown and Kangaroo Ground? What happened to the finished quilt?

Find out the answers to all these questions on Saturday 14 March at the Heidelberg Historical Society Court House Museum at a talk presented by Margaret Birtley, one of the three co-curators of the exhibition featuring the quilt and its story.

The museum is open 2-4, with the talk commencing at 2.45 p.m. Entry is $5.00
