[Gallery Presentation] Grandma’s Legacy

August 31, 2019 @ 1:00 pm 4:00 pm

Included in Museum Admission Price

Want to enjoy a warm and fuzzy feeling? Spend some time in the Bryan’s Special Exhibit Gallery examining the exquisite stitch work of a selection of Texas-themed quilts from the Winedale Quilt Collection on loan from the Dolph Briscoe Center. Afterward, visit with the members of the Island Quilters guild for stories and techniques regarding this beautiful homespun art form.  In addition to being household necessities, quilts were often records of a family’s history and passed with love from generation to generation. Leave inspired with the knowledge and ambition to create your own treasured hand me down.
