Fabric of Time: New England History Told Through Domestic Art

This new exhibit at Memorial Hall Museum looks at the history of quilting in New England and explores how quilters expressed their aspirations and observations through their art.

With 20 quilts and related objects spanning more than two and a half centuries, visitors can see the enduring traditions and technological advancements and learn how they impacted the creative forces behind some of New England’s domestic art.

We’re proud to be partnering with Sisters in Stitches Joined by the Cloth—a guild keeping the traditions of African American quilting alive. We’re honored that they are loaning us “Roots,” a strip-pieced quilt made entirely from donated fabric and created collaboratively by the guild members. It will be a centerpiece in our new Fabric of Time exhibit, which looks at the enduring values of New England women through the quilts they created.

Memorial Hall Museum is open 11 am to 4:30 pm Tuesday through Sunday (closed Monday) through October 31, 2021.  Unless fully vaccinated, visitors are required to wear a mask. 

Thank you for helping to keep our community safe. All museum staff are fully vaccinated.
