Fields-Penn House to Participate in Abingdon “Block Party”!

Quilt Block Party FB Cover

The Fields-Penn House is happy to announce that we will be a participating venue for the second annual Abingdon Block Party!  The Block Party began a year ago, an annual festival honoring the craftsmanship, artistry, and history of quilts. The Fields-Penn House will host a quilting bee, in which you can help quilt a quilt top.  We will also display several quilts throughout the downstairs of the museum.  Come hear the unique stories behind the quilts, and take a tour with a docent who is continuing her family’s legacy of quilting.  See the pink “elephants” in a room.  Hear how a texture quilt can calm a child with special needs.  So many stories await you during the annual Abingdon “Block Party”!  Mark your calendars today!
