Join the Caroline County Chamber of Commerce for an
Open House Event with Fiber Arts of the Eastern Shore for a reception.
The WPA Reproduction Quilt Exhibit is being showcased at the Fiber Arts Center at the Open House Reception and we can't wait to have you view these stunning quilts!
Quilters were among the artists and artisans employed by the
Works Progress Administration (WPA) between 1935 and 1942 as part of
the Roosevelt Administration’s Second New Deal.
In 1989, The WPA Museum Extension Project, Langhorne, PA, was researched and
published by the Variable Star Quilt Guild and the Generational Resources Exchange.
The product of their research included 30 quilt designs.
