March 30, 2022 – The Sanibel Historical Village quilt show has been extended through the month of April. Some 40 are displayed throughout every building of the Village.
“The quilts on exhibit demonstrate the wide variety of materials and patterns used by quilt makers over time, including one quilt made from gentlemen’s silk ties and another from velvet pieces with a deep fringe border,” explained Bonnie Frankel, SHMV board member.
Information as to pattern name and time frame is provided for each quilt when known.
The Sanibel Historical Museum and Village is open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Full guided tours take place at 10:30 and 1:30 depending on docent availability, and advance reservations are not required. There is no additional fee for these tours. The Village is located at 950 Dunlop Road (next to BIG ARTS) and there is handicap access. Admission is $10 for adults over 18. Members and children are free. The village has handicap access to all but one building, the tiny Post Office.
