When: April 1 & 2, 2017 (Sat/Sun)

Quilters of all levels are invited to participate in the Peabody Historical Society’s third annual miniature quilt challenge: “Inspired by Time: Women of Peabody.”  Participants will choose one woman from a selection of historical Peabody women and create a miniature quilt inspired by her life story, historical time period, or quilt examples dating from her lifetime. There is no entry fee to participate in this challenge.

Submissions for “Inspired by Time: Women of Peabody” will be exhibited at the Smith Barn on April 1 & 2, 2017. Visitors will have the opportunity to cast a vote for their favorite quilt, and Viewers’ Choice ribbons will be awarded to the top three entries, including a $100 cash prize for first place. This event will also feature an exhibit on the Women of Peabody throughout the Nathaniel Felton Senior House.

Entry forms must be received by Monday, March 6, 2017 to participate in the challenge and exhibit.
