Event Description

The Mountain Gateway Museum invites visitors to discover the memorable stories embedded in the the vintage textiles on display in its new exhibit, Uncovered: Airing the Stories of Heirloom Bedcoverings. Uncovered features a small sampling of quilts, coverlets, and bedspreads made by western North Carolina women and used by their families within the past two centuries. It also explores how the colors, fabrics, patterns, and needlework in these textiles offer hints about their makers and the times and communities in which they were created. This exhibit will run from January 19 - May 31.
