An array of quilting styles and color schemes will fill our first floor galleries with African American artistry, creativity, and storytelling. The Friendly Quilters of Bucks County and Princeton Sankofa Stitchers Modern Quilt Guild keep the traditions of quilt-making alive with works of art that tell stories and strengthen historical and community bonds. The exhibit will feature workshops and lectures on the history and traditions of quilts in the African American community.
