Local Quilters Demonstrate Skills At Museum’s Free Sunday Family Times

Local quilters demonstrate their techniques at the Museum of Ventura County during the museum’s free Sunday Family Times on April 18, May 16 and June 20 from 1-3 p.m. The museum’s Sunday Family Times arts and crafts events are held on the third Sunday of the month.

Sunday, April 18 the art project involves making traditional quilt pieces out of paper; on May 16 children learn how to stencil on fabric squares; and on June 20 the project involves recycling remnant pieces into a quilt design.

The quilters’ visits and the quilt-themed art projects reflect the museum’s current exhibit Becoming Art at the Seams: a Juried Exhibition of Contemporary & Art Quilts, running now through June 20.

The Museum of Ventura County, now at 89 S. California Street in downtown Ventura, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Admission is free except for some events. For information, go to http://www.venturamuseum.org or call (805) 653-0323.
