Bites and Bits of History: Crazy Quilts in the Mahoning Valley – CANCELED

Thursday, March 19, 2020 @ 12:00 pm

This event has been canceled.

Mahoning Valley Historical Society will present “Crazy Quilts in the Mahoning Valley” as the featured Bites and Bits of History Lunch Program at noon on Thursday, March 19, at Tyler History Center in Downtown Youngstown. The presenters will be Virginia Draa, Ed.D. and Jessica Trickett, MVHS Collections Manager.

“This particular kind of quilts was not intended for functional use as bedding or means of keeping warm. These quilts were created to be displayed as works of art, storytelling, and historical commemoration in the parlors of homes,” says Trickett.

Dr. Draa and Ms. Trickett have recently co-curated an exhibit with crazy quilts as its focus. “Embellishment and Excess: Victorian Era Crazy Quilts” is currently on display in the Youngstown Foundation Community History Gallery at Tyler History Center through May 3, 2020. Draa also volunteers with the textile collections at Arms Family Museum, in addition to consulting with museums throughout the U.S.

Bites and Bits of History Lunch Programs are offered every third Thursday of the month. The program is free and attendees may bring their own lunch. The Tyler History Center doors open at 11:30am. In addition to ample street parking nearby, an adjacent public lot on the west side of the building is available and costs $2.50. Tyler History Center is located at 325 W. Federal St.
