What’s On Now:
The Alberta Quilt Project
The Alberta Quilt Project is now documenting heritage quilts brought by immigrants or made in Alberta. Have your family quilts (pre-1970) documented and photographed as part of Alberta’s quilting history. Lucie Heins of the Royal Alberta Museum will be on hand at the Peace River Museum on Monday, May 27th to document quilts from 1 to 4:30 pm. Please call 780-624-4261 to get an appointment as they are filling up.
From 7 to 8 pm, Lucie will also be giving a talk entitled, “Quilts and the Settlement of Canada” at the Museum. This presentation is free and open to the public. We hope quilters, textile artists and history buffs will all make it to hear Lucie speak.
Roots of the Peace: A Wholesome Bounty
Starting June 10th, the Museum will be hosting a new exhibit with a focus on local food and agriculture. There will be stories from our pioneer farmers all the way up to current organic farmers and food providers.”
