Huron County, Ontario – The Huron County Museum is pleased to host a quilt display in honour of Residential School Survivors.
The temporary exhibit features 10 quilts made with the same Journey Home fabric panel that were then individually quilted to provide hope and comfort to the survivors who will receive the quilts at the end of the exhibit.
This project was initiated by Miss Kettle & Stony Point Jr., Jaylynn Wolfe, and her mother Laura. After finding 10 Journey Home panels, they approached the Kincardine Sunset Quilters Guild to see if they would be interested in making one quilt for them. The group quickly offered to make all 10 quilts that each tell a different story. These stories are shared with each quilt in the exhibit. The guild gifted the quilts back to Jaylynn, who will then gift them to residential school survivors of Kettle & Stony Point First Nation after the exhibit closes on Sept. 3.
The exhibit is available during regular hours at the Museum and is included with regular admission or free with a Museum membership or Huron County Library card. For more information about the exhibit, visit www.HuronCountyMuseum.ca
