Delaware State Parks’ Fee Season is in effect.

Help capture the cultural richness of the State of Delaware by bringing your pre-1950, Delaware made quilts to be documented.  A small donation to the Quilt Documentation Project will be requested to document quilts from other states.  Bring your quilt, information about the quilt maker and his/her family and the history of the quilt.  While you wait, trained volunteers will photograph the quilt and gather pertinent information.

The Delaware Quilt Documentation Project is a collaborative effort between the University of Delaware, and the Delaware State Division of Historic and Cultural Affairs.  To register for a timed slot please contact, Fran Mayhew at or (302)368-8423.
