Barn Quilt workshop
April 6, 9 a.m.–4 p.m.
Join us at the Chisholm Trail Museum for our spring Barn Quilt workshop. Barn quilts are square-shaped boards, which have been painted to resemble a quilt block and placed on a structure. Barn quilts have evolved into a rural development initiative to boost tourism in communities. Through the development and promotion of barn quilt trails, tourists are encouraged to visit and explore all that rural communities have to offer. The creation of barn quilts in communities is effective in building community pride, celebrating community heritage, increasing interest in art and history and teaching skills that combine science, math, and design. Oklahoma State University Extension Educator Lynda Latta is leading the way in establishing Oklahoma Barn Quilt Trails. Plan to attend the Barn Quilt Workshop and become a part of the “Clothesline of Quilts.”
Each participant will complete their very own barn quilt to proudly display at home. This workshop is open to adults and teens with a parent. The cost is $15 per person and lunch is included. To register, please call 405-375-5176.
