As a special tie-in with the Brick Store Museum’s ongoing exhibition, "Quilts from the Collections of the Brick Store Museum," the museum hosts “The Patchwork Series.” On three separate Saturdays, different quilters showcase and demonstrate various facets of their craft. This programming is made possible through a grant from the Virginia Hodgkins Somers Foundation. The series concludes with the Southern Maine Chapter of the Embroiderers’ Guild of America, Inc. holding a “stitch-in,” where several talented guild members educate with works-in-progress and showcase finished pieces in an open-house format. Needlepoint, penny rugs, cross-stitch, crazy quilts, and more serve as inspiration to needleworkers of all skill levels.
