Join VABA and many other exhibitors at the upcoming 2012 Vermont History Expo, the weekend of June 16, 17 in Tunbridge Vermont. This year’s theme? Vermont in the Civl War. This bi-annual event is put on by the Vermont Historical Society, and sponsored by various Vermont businesses and Foundations.
This is just lovely! – The Vermont Historical Society has an extensive Quilt collection that ranges from whole-cloth examples from the early 1800s to a commemorative piece from 1991, all being documented as Vermont-made. The collection is now available to view in an online exhibition called ‘Patterns of History’ – you can view it here.
