The Tennessee State Library and Archives will host the latest in a series of workshops and seminars titled, “Quilts of Tennessee: What they Can Tell Us About Our Ancestors,” April 17. The workshop will be held from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. at the State Library and Archives building, located at 403 Seventh Ave. N. in Nashville.
Lori D. Lockhart, a fourth generation Tennessee quilter and archivist at TSLA, will conduct the workshop, which is free and open to the public.
The Quilts of Tennessee Collection at the Tennessee State Library and Archives contains photographs and images of quilts made in Tennessee from the 1820s through the 1970s as well as information - sometimes spanning several generations - about quilt makers.
