Learn to make a Log Cabin quilt square! Participants need to bring 3 pieces of cotton fabric in colors they love- fat quarters 18”X 22” work well; needle, thread and scissors. We will provide the template and pattern for those who would like to continue and make a larger project. Bring 3 pieces of cotton fabric. At PMM’s Stephen Phillips Memorial Library, Church Street, Searsport. $30 non-members, $25 members.

When & Where
Penobscot Marine Museum
Penobscot Marine Museum has the feel of a 19th Maine village. Our lovely campus of ten buildings is in the charming town of Searsport on Penobscot Bay. Our ship captain’s house is beautifully furnished with antiques from around the world. Another ship captain’s house displays our extensive collection of 19th century marine paintings, scrimshaw, ship models, and China Trade objects. We have three 19th century barns displaying over fifty classic small water craft including lobster boats, dories, and canoes. Two buildings are filled with hands-on maritime activities for kids. Outside on our green you can raise and lower a ship’s mast!
Check our website www.penobscotmarinemuseum.org for exhibit, lectures and workshops through the year. The PMM campus is open from late May through late October, but our Gallery has special exhibits, lectures and workshops throughout the winter and spring, and our Museum Store and Framer remain open Thursday through Saturday.
