The Quilters Hall of Fame in the historic Marie Webster house in Marion, Indiana opens its doors today for the 2011 season. Hours are 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Thursday through Saturday through December 10.
View the spring 2011 exhibit and learn about individuals that have made contributions to quilting as an art form, including Marion, Indiana native Marie Webster, namesake and former resident of the Quilters Hall of Fame building. Webster is known for running a mail-order quilt pattern business from her home in the early 1900′s and wrote the first comprehensive American history of quilting, Quilts: Their Story and How to Make Them in 1915. Webster’s legend lives on in her former Marion, Indiana home with ever changing quilt exhibits and a yearly Quilters Celebration.
Visitors to the Quilters Hall of Fame may also enjoy the Queen’s Tea at Aunt Sue’s Tea Room, or a pastry and book at Works Cited. Both are only a short drive from the historic Marie Webster House in Marion, Indiana.
