Description:

The Edison & Ford Winter Estates and the Southwest Florida Quilter’s Guild will be “airing their quilts” on clotheslines in front of Seminole Lodge, the winter estate of Thomas and Mina Edison. The tradition of “airing” quilts dates back to Colonial America when women would take quilts out of summer storage and “air” them in autumn for use in winter. In addition to the contemporary quilts available for show and sale, a variety of antique quilts will be on display. Edison Ford Members FREE; non members $5.
