Used Quilts -The Stories They TellThe September meeting of the Goshenhoppen Historians will feature Lorin and Dave Tuttle's collection of vintage quilts. It will take place on Thursday, September 18, 2008 at 7:30 p.m. Collected over a span of more than 30 years, and including some family heir-looms, the Tuttle's of Oley Valley have amassed more than 150 handmade quilts from the period 1840 to 1940. The quilts, all from this country, originated mostly in Pennsylvania and neighboring states.
While the quilts are beautiful, in and of themselves, of more interest are the stories they tell of their makers and the families they comforted and kept warm over the years they were in use.
The Tuttles, members of the Goshenhoppen Historians themselves, have presented the stories of their quilts to a number of organizations. Their program is both entertaining and informative.
