The Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad Recap
We were thrilled to have so many attend yesterday's Volunteer Committee talk The Secret Story of Quilts and the Underground Railroad by Pat Ruggles (pictured here with one of her quilts) in honour of Black History Month!
Here is a link to an article about this event in the Hamilton Spectator: http://www.thespec.com/news/local/article/665068--true-or-not-possibility-of-quilts-helping-slaves-escape-fascinates-quilters#
Thanks again to all who attended, we hope you enjoyed your afternoon at the GPAG!
