Join us for the Edison and Ford Winter Estates annual “Airing of the Quilts” quilt show. Dozens of quilts from the Quilters’ Guild will be on display, suspended from clotheslines between trees and select antique quilts from the 1880s to 1940s will be on display inside the Thomas Edison house, Henry Ford house and the Edison guest house. Quilters’ Guild participants will also have quilts available for sale.
Certified quilt appraiser, Lars Cain, will be on site and conducting appraisals from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. His vast experience includes the Library of Congress and the Smithsonian Institution. Since 1977, he has appraised more than 20,000 quilts. Visitors may bring antique quilts for assessment. Verbal appraisals will be offered for $20 and the fee for a written appraisal is $50 per quilt.
The quilt show is included with a self-guided or guided tour of the historic home site and botanical gardens. Tickets may be purchased online or at the ticket counter. Admission is free for Edison Ford members. Visit https://www.edisonfordwinterestates.org/events/annual-quilt-show/
