As an art form, quilts have deep roots in American life and experience. For more than three centuries, the artists, primarily women, have created highly individualized expressions in this medium that is both yielding and unforgiving, and challenges the maker to test the limits imposed by cutting and piecing bits of fabric.
This exhibition has been organized by the American Folk Art Museum, New York.

The Community Hospice cares for hundreds of Veterans on our program every year. To thank them for their service, we recognize each with a certificate and present them with a handmade blanket or quilt in red, white, and blue. Unfortunately, we only receive a fraction of the donated blankets we need, leaving about a third of our Veterans without. We are seeking knitters, crocheters and quilters to help ensure every Veteran on hospice can receive this gift of comfort and warmth. Blankets can be lap size (35 x 40 inches) or large enough for a hospital bed (66 x 90 inches). If your members would like to participate in this very special mission, your hand made blanket can be dropped off at our Albany office located at 445 New Karner Road. We also have offices in Saratoga Springs and Catskill. For more information, call The Community Hospice at (518) 724-0200 and ask to speak with Cindy in the volunteer office.
