Harford History in Textiles: The Norrisville Quilt and More
July 12 @ 12:30 pm - 1:30 pmFree
The Textile Department of the Harford County Historical Society holds over two thousand items in its collection, including hats, gloves, military uniforms and an array of men’s, women’s and children’s clothing that combined help tell the story of daily life in Harford County through the years. One gem of the collection is a quilt made in 1976 by a group of Norrisville homemakers who were determined to chronicle the historic places in their beloved community for the education and enjoyment of future generations.
On Tuesday, July 12, 2022, Executive Director, Chris Potts will share the story of the “Norrisville Quilt” as told by Judith Billingslea, one of the quilt’s creators, and introduce viewers of the virtual Brown Bag Lunch program to the many textile treasures that the Society houses and preserves.
