Quilt Display at the Kensington Library
Did you know March is National Quilting Month and that March 21 is National Quilting Day? National Quilting Day celebrates quilts, and those who make them, annually on the third Saturday in March. The National Quilting Association started National Quilting Day in 1991. It is a day that is celebrated around the country with special quilting shows, classes, open museums and much more. This is a day to appreciate and to recognize quilt makers, along with all of their long labor, love and skill that goes into the making of each quilt.
Visit the Kensington Community/School Library during the month of March to view the beautiful quilt display shared with us by the wonderful ladies of the local, Prairie Treasures Quilt Guild. Library hours are: Monday from 8am to 8pm, Tuesday through Friday from 8am to 4pm, and Saturday from 9am to 2pm. Stop in and see these amazing works, and creative piecing together of colorful, artful patterns.
