Museum Seeks Help with Upcoming Exhibit

quiltalongposterBy Women’s History Month in March 2014, visitors will find their voices have been heard! The team at the PoCo Muse is developing Making Her Place, the story of the women’s movement in Porter County. Help from all of our communities is needed to make this exhibit possible.

A new community quilt, representing the collaborative effort for women’s rights, will be an ongoing piece of the permanent exhibit at the Porter County Museum. For centuries, fabrics have recorded significant events, individuals, communities, and stories. Visitors are invited to participate by adding a quilt square representing a significant woman in their own lives.

Members of the String-a-Long Quilt Guild will be at the Museum on Nov. 10 from 1-4pm helping guests begin the quilt. No matter the skill level, everyone is encouraged to lend a hand in this effort to celebrate the history of Porter County Women.
