2015 EXHIBIT: HURLEY HARVEST:

BY HAND AND BY HORSE

This exhibit tells the story of farming on the Hurley Flats and the crop transitions that have occurred over the centuries. The tools displayed represent the pre-motorized era. Many of the early Hurley images have never before been displayed in public. Familiar artifacts are on display as well as a rare Dutch sith and its companion tool the mathook.

STAR QUILT RAFFLE

The drawing for this year’s hand pieced, queen sized quilt will be held at 4 PM on August 15 at the Hurley Corn Festival.  Raffle tickets may be purchased at the Hurley Heritage Society museum during weekend museum hours or at the Corn Festival. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5.   


The quilt, made by Dolly Woodin of New Paltz, is a colorful star pattern in shades of coral, blue, deep green and beige. It is made from reproduction cotton prints which represent 18th, 19th,  and 20th centuries. For example, the blue design is from around 1830.  The fabrics and batting are 100% cotton.

Dolly will be at the Corn Festival from 10 AM to noon to talk about and answer questions about historic fabrics and quilting.
