Overview

Discover the rich textile traditions of an 1850 farm as you explore the bed coverings that kept a farm family warm at night. From quilting bees, weaving looms, and knitting needles; farm women made a wide variety of bed coverings with homegrown fibers. Step back in time and join the quilting bee and learn the difference between a quilt, coverlet, and comforter. Our treasured 1850 era and our reproduced quilts and coverlets will be on display in the parlor. Children can learn to weave a “paper” blanket. Plus, explore our historic buildings and meet our heritage breed animals. Bring the whole family and enjoy a weekend of quilting fun on the farm. Not interested in quilting?
