Honoree Joyce Gross in the News

The Bonham Visitor’s Center will also feature quilts from the Winedale Quilt Center, showcasing historic quilts from the Joyce Gross Quilt History Collection.  Gross’ collection is composed of historically significant quilts and research materials assembled by one of the foremost authorities on twentieth-century American quilt making and contains more than 170 examples of American quilting.  The eight quilts on exhibit during the Quilt Hop will illustrate the variety of the collection, including pattern and kit quilts, as well as original patterns from award winning quilt makers. Barbara White, Briscoe Center, UT-Austin, will give a special presentation on the quilts at the beginning of the hour, every other hour, starting at 10:00 a.m.  To read the full news report and see a few quilts, click here.
