Join Us for Our Annual Holiday Open House December 7th 10 am – 1 pm

Our 20th anniversary celebrations begin with the December 7th open house at the Harborcreek Historical Society office.

Come renew friendships with many of the Society’s early supporters who were involved in “laying the foundation” that has guided the Society through the past twenty years. Greet our present members who serve as Directors and active volunteers in the Society today. Reminisce about the activities which drew you into volunteering with HHS.  If you can’t attend in person, send a greeting and we will post it for attendees to read. We hope to reconnect with as many members and former members as possible.

Women’s History through Quilts

The Harborcreek Historical Society invites you to attend their public program, “Women’s History through Quilts,” on Tuesday, May 15th, 7:00 pm. Marilyn Stern, a founding member of the Erie Quilt Guild, is the guest speaker for the evening. Her presentation highlights late 19th and 20th century women and their achievements in using natural dyes, weaving and quilting.

The American quilting tradition began centuries ago as pioneer women sought ways to keep their families warm. Today, quilts are recognized as one of the foremost examples of American folk art, characterized by ingenuity, originality, color, texture and liveliness. Their patterns, materials and subject matter evoke specific eras and point to changes in technology and lifestyle.

In addition to a special exhibition of contemporary and antique quilts from Marilyn’s personal collection, attendees will see a display of quilts and quilting tools collected from Society members and volunteers. The presentation will take place at the Harborcreek Historical Society office, 5451 Merwin Lane in Knowledge Park.
