As part of the 'Quilts and Communities Seminar' that is being held as part of History Week at the Powerhouse Discovery Centre, Castle Hill, Annette Gero and Karen Fail have been asked to talk about two of the quilts in the Museum's collection that they have studied. The talk will be held on Wednesday the 12th September 2012 at Castle Hill.
Karen will talk about Aunt Clara's quilt. This beautiful embroidered patchwork quilt is named 'Aunt Clara's quilt'
for Mrs Clara Bate (nee Hughes). Family history suggests that Clara
worked on the quilt all her life and that its imagery reflects both her
daily life and its significant events. See http://www.powerhousemuseum.com/collection/database/?irn=259537 for more details.
