DAR holds quilt program

image
Quilts have long been an important folk-art in the United States, and the William Taylor Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution learned more about the history and construction of quilts at its January meeting. Chapter regent Jean Overman, center, an avid quilter, conducted the program and displayed many of her beautiful quilts. With her is Shelia Amos, left, and Nancy Turner. The DAR seeks to promote interest in all items of historical interest. The DAR Museum, located in our nation's capital just two blocks from the White House, contains a collection of over 30,000 decorative and fine arts objects spanning the 18th and 19th centuries, such as furniture, glass, ceramics, silver, and textiles, including quilts. The museum offers free walk-in tours, free exhibitions, and several interesting programs for all ages. Plan to visit the DAR Museum on your next trip to Washington, DC.
