Event Details

The event includes Artisans at the Grand Tea with guest speaker Jean Carlton, a 3D Quilt Workshop
with Anna Johannsen, the New Ulm Actors Community Theatre (NUACT) one-act play Quilters: Lives
of the Pioneers, Wanda's Attic Kid's Quilt Class, Pieces of the Past Bed Turning and A Stitch in Time Quilt Exhibit. A bed turning is a way to introduce quilters and non-quilters to the beauty of antique or unique quilts. A bed is brought in and quilts are placed on the bed. As each quilt is turned and held up for the audience, the quilt is described, dated and the story of the quilt is given. In addition to the main activities, the three local retail quilting stores are coordinating mini-workshops throughout the day. 

Quilitistry is sponsored by the New Ulm Retail and Specialty Shops, New Ulm Area Foundation, New Ulm Chamber of Commerce and Visitors Bureau with partial funding from the Prairie Lakes Regional Arts Council. The event is supported by the Prairie Piecemakers Quilt Guild, Brown County Historical Society Museum and the Wanda Gag House Association.
