Alberta Quilt Project

The Alberta Quilt Project will be coming to Pincher Creek’s Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village at the end of May and the start of June. 

The project will index all the quilts either made in Alberta or brought there by the immigration process from the 1800s to the 1960s. On Saturday (May 31st), the first local day of the event, the quilts held by the Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village will be indexed for the project. 

The following day, Sunday 01st June, quilts owned by individuals can be brought into the museum and be inventoried – please phone ahead to book your spot. They will also are looking for four to six volunteers to help with the quilt inventory, volunteers who would be available for days. 

Histories of the quilts will be researched and written in addition to the items being photographed. The data will be compiled in a province wide index accessed at
