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!
