Program Details


Join the Ames Quilt Guild for their April meeting which will feature a "bed turning," narrated by Phyllis Schrag.

During a bed turning, quilts of various types and sizes are “turned” from a position of repose and then are carried through the audience while someone reads the quilts’ history and stories out loud.
