Wrap yourself in the next Museum seminar

St. Marys Journal Argus

Staff and volunteers at the St. Marys Museum have been busy over the past few months photographing, condition reporting and rehousing the facility's historic quilt and oversized textile collection.

In conjunction with this project, the Museum will be offering a seminar on the care and conservation of historic quilts on Thursday, March 27 at 7 p.m. It's part of the Cadzow Park attraction's ongoing seminar series — which wraps up later this spring with a much-anticipated presentation from the St. Marys-based duo currently working hard at renovating the former St. Marys Central School into the Central School Manor luxury condominium complex.

At a recent meeting of St. Marys Town Council, councillors were informed that the Central School Manor seminar is proving so popular that the Museum is hoping to add another date for a second opportunity to hear the presentation. Watch the Journal Argus or contact the Museum for further details.

As for this week's quilt care seminar, included will be a behind-the-scenes tour of the Museum’s textile storage area to show best practices in fabric conservation.

The cost is $10 for Museum members and $12 for non-members, and pre-registration is required. For more information, call the Museum at 519-284-3556.
