Butler County Historical Society members are invited to attend an “Out of the Archives” event that showcases several of the quilts in the society’s collection on Friday evening, March 29, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. The member-only event will be held in the Emma Ritchie Auditorium of the society’s complex at 327 N. Second Street, Hamilton, and include free coffee, tea and cookies. Non-members who wish to attend the event can join the society during the evening. People planning to attend are requested to RSVP.

Mary Royer, member of the American Quilt Study Group and Midwest Fabric Study Group, will conduct a “Quilt Bed Turning” in which she discusses what makes a quilt and why so many people devote their time and skills to sewing beautiful and practical quilts. Several lovely quilts will be on display. The BCHS plans to open an exhibit of many of the society’s quilts in the near future.
