A Thread and A Story

A Thread and A Story

Every quilt tells a story. This exhibition shares stories and traditions from the age old practice of quilt making. Quilting exists almost everywhere on the globe, each country, region, culture has its own quilting styles, traditions and techniques that have evolved from varied histories connected with storytelling from generation to generation.

The Museums of Mississauga will be showcasing their Canadian Heritage Quilt Collection alongside quilts shared from residents, private and institutional collections and artists.

Come see quilts at Bradley Museum and Benares Historic House.

Exhibition runs September 9 - February 25, 2018.
