Hope museum seeking loans of family quilts

The Yellow Trail Museum in Hope is looking for family quilts from the northeastern Bartholomew County community to display during the town’s annual festival.

The museum is asking for anyone in Hope or surrounding areas to drop off their quilts before Sept. 1st. If you have a quilt you would like to display, you can drop them off at the museum on the northwest corner of the Hope Town Square, from 1 to 5 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, or on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m.

The quilts will be returned after Hope Heritage Days, which is Sept. 23rd, 24th and 25th.

If you have any questions, you can call the museum at 812-546-8020.
