This special exhibit highlights quilts made locally in Cobb County and the women who made them. History has often left women nameless, faceless and voiceless. They were referred to as Mrs. John Smith or Mrs. Henry Cole, without consideration of having a first name or an identity separate from their husbands. Despite being hidden from our documented past, they found ways to leave their marks. Join us as we gaze upon the beautiful stitching, patterns and fabric choices, and imagine who made the quilts, why they were made and what these women’s lives were like. Try to imagine what impact they had on our history and what kind of stories we could tell if documented history had also been herstory.
