Feed Sack Symposium

The Lone Star Quilt Study Group in partnership with the Museum is holding a feed sack symposium at the Museum on Saturday, August 17, 2019 from 10:00 AM until 4:00 PM. Pat Nickols who assembled the bulk of the Museum's feed sack collection will be in from California to discuss collecting and using the materials for research. Linda Fisher, an award winning West Texas quilter, will discuss growing up wearing feed sacks and the Museum's curator, Dr. Marian Ann Montgomery will share what has been learned from the collection so far. Registration for the symposium is $40.00 and includes lunch. Arrangements have been made for a group hotel rate for those coming from a distance.
