Wishing for spring? Combat the winter blues with a look at the birds, bees, and flower patterns found in the Living History Farms’ historic textile collection. This special exhibit of historic quilts, clothing, handwork, and hats have been selected for their nature motifs and garden themes. Visit with craft and quilting demonstrators and explore hands-on textile activities for kids and adults. Learn from creative demonstrators and bring your own knitting or sewing projects to work on alongside museum crafters. Chat with plant and pollinator specialists and browse the MarketPlace Museum Store for supplies to start your own spring nature projects.
