Madison County Historical Society volunteer Susan Johnson leads a weekly informal group of quilters through the process of transforming patches of fabric and yards of floss into quilts, pillows and other fabric arts projects. The group is free and open to any member of the Society. For more information about the quilting group or Society membership, leave a message at the Historical Society at 740-852-2977.

Bound together by needle and thread, members of a Madison County Historical Society quilting circle spend time coaxing patterns of fabric into coverlets, pillows and quilts.

Guided by volunteer Susan Johnson, 10 ladies trade the hustle and bustle swirling outside the doors of the society’s main building for soothing music and gentle banter inside amidst the heritage and artifacts of Madison County. The informal group meets once a week on Wednesday afternoons to work on quilt squares and learn new techniques.
