McHenry County Historical Society & Museum
Join the Heritage Quilters each Wednesday morning throughout the year at the Society’s museum at 6422 Main Street in Union. Quilters of varying levels of experience meet from 9:30 a.m. to about noon to work on a raffle quilt that benefits the not-for-profit Historical Society. For more information phone (815) 923-2267
This year’s Christmas display carries visitors back to a picture-perfect, circa 1950s Main Street around Christmas.
The Heritage Quilters annual Quilt Cutting Day for the 2015 raffle quilt begins at 10 a.m. January 15, 2014. If you are a quilter, bring your favorite scissors, pencil, ruler, chalk to mark dark fabrics, needle, and white or off-white thread. And, of course, bring your favorite dish to pass!
The potluck, which will begin between 11:30 a.m. and noon on the cutting day, is a highlight of the Heritage Quilters' social year!
