COMBINING ART, LITERATURE AND HISTORY
Historic Bess Streeter Aldrich House Hosts First-Annual Quilt Show
Elmwood, NE – April 17, 2012 – There will be something for everyone on May 5th and 6th in Elmwood, as quilting, literature and history collide at the Bess Streeter Aldrich House’s first-annual quilt show.
A collection of quilts from the Oxbow Quilters, many of them prize-winners at local and state fairs, will be displayed throughout the author’s historic home. Guests can visit with some of the quilters and Aldrich House tour guides on self-guided tours of the prairie-style home, built in 1922.
“We’re hoping to bring in lots of new visitors who haven’t toured the home before, and encourage those who have visited before to return for this special show,” Aldrich Foundation Teresa Lorensen said. “And, the quilters are excited to show their creations at a local venue.”
The show begins Saturday, May 5, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and continues Sunday, May 6 from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. Admission is $5.00 for adults, $3.00 for children ages 6-12, and free for ages 5 and under.
The Bess Streeter Aldrich House is located at 204 East F Street, Elmwood, NE and is open for guided tours on Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday afternoons from 2:00 to 5:00 p.m. For more information, visit www.BessStreeterAldrich.org
The Bess Streeter Aldrich Foundation is a non-profit organization which operates the Bess Streeter Aldrich House & Museum. The foundation has sponsored a short story contest since 2003. For more information about the house & museum, the short story contest, or other annual events, visit www.BessStreeterAldrich.org.
