[QUILTMAKING] Quilt Discovery Day...Lecture & Appraisals

African American Genealogy Group of the Miami Valley (AAGGMV) is planning their 27 Oct 2008 around Quiltmaking & the Afircan American Experience.

The meeting will be held at the National African American Museum & Cultral Center located in Wilberforce, Ohio. The meeting is in conjunction with the current African American Quilting display at the Museum.

Below is a communication for the proposed meeting agenda from AAGGMV member Valena Randolph of the NAAM&CC.

Thank you for your quick response. Quilt Discovery Day is when you bring your old family quilts from home to have them appraised. I would like the program to be from 1-5 p.m. That way, you will have time to:
1) do your meeting
2) Hear Dr. Mazloomi's lecture on the history of quilting in the African American community
3)tour the quilt exhibit.

While you all are having your meeting, Dr. Maz will be working on the appraisals. There might not be time for the people to share their stories, so I would ask that they return the following week for "Quilt Circle Stories".

Ask those who want to participate to make certain that they have pinned their names to their family quilts.

Hope this sounds alright to you. Let me know soon so that I can email Dr. Maz the details.
