On Tuesday, November 10, the Coffee @ Ten lecture features Micah Ling, MSU’s Historical Collections Specialist. Her topic of discussion will be “The Great Lakes Quilt Center: Collections History, Care, and Highlights.” Ling will delve into the history of the collection, different makers and quilting families represented in the collection, researchers, preservation techniques used, and specific unique pieces from the collection.

Little Traverse Bay Quilter’s Guild has represented the quilting world in this region since 1986. There are approximately 125 talented quilters in this nationally associated organization. Their quilts comprise a wide range of styles and techniques. Some of their members will showcase their quilts in the gallery from September 19 to November 21. This exhibit will include a variety of fabrics and patterns that reflect modern quilts of today, plus those reminiscent of periods of history such as the Civil War and the Great Depression.

Coffee @ Ten is sponsored in part by Roast and Toast and Johan’s of Petoskey. The Coffee @ Ten series is free and open to the public, no reservations necessary, and all lectures begin at 10 a.m.
