Stories of the Sears' National Quilt Contest at Chicago's 1933 World's Fair

Monday, April 15, 2019

Flagg Creek Heritage Society is hosting Nancy Ciesiel who will share her research into the Sears-sponsored National Quilt Contest held at the 1933 World’s Fair. Her presentation is based on the book PATCHWORK SOUVENIRS OF THE 1933 WORLD’S FAIR by quilt historians Merikay Waldvogel and Barbara Brackman. Nancy will take on the persona of a woman of the 30’s entering her quilt in the contest and share her story with us. If you have a 1930’s era quilt, you are welcome to bring it to the program to show. No entry fee and refreshments will be served!
