Needle and Thread for the Bed


Experience Collection: Needle & Thread for the Bed

As you step into the Keillor House Museum you immediately feel as if you’ve traveled back over 100 years into the past. The heart of some of New Brunswick’s most prominent history started beating right here and you get to relive all of it through your guided tour. Sew your own quilt block with instruction from specifically trained resource experts, gathering inspiration from the breathtaking antique quilts that surround you. Head to St. James Church Textile Museum to complete your afternoon, where you’ll try the age-old practices of carding, spinning wool and throwing the weave shuttle – skills that revolutionized the textile industry. It’s a wonderful way to experience New Brunswick’s 19th-century past.

Includes admission to both museums and take home quilt block
Weekdays during the season 1-4 pm
