Winedale quilt exhibit “Citizen Stitching: Political Quilts in the Winedale Quilt Collection” 
February 16-18, 24-25, 2024
at Winedale near Round Top

Political loyalties, beliefs, and opinions have historically inspired quilters to create works dedicated to a party or political figure. This exhibition displays examples, drawn from the Winedale Quilt Collection, of how some quilters have expressed party affiliations and support for candidates with both original and well-known patterns throughout the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Selected quilts include homages or gifts to charismatic Texans such as W. Lee “Pappy” O’Daniel, John Nance Garner, and Ann Richards.

The exhibit is at Winedale, Friday and Saturday, February 16th-17th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Sunday, February 18th, noon to 4 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, February 24th-25th, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, February 25th, noon to 4 p.m. Contact Winedale at 979-278-3530 or e-mail for more information.
