Handkerchiefs and Bears

The Quilt Museum is holding one of their “Sunday at the Museum” programs this afternoon from 2-4.   Delightful handkerchief collector and storyteller Katie Dix will present “Mid-Century Hankies: High Point of Handkerchief Design.”

Attendees will relish the art, beauty and excellent design of these extraordinary 1950’s textiles. You’ll learn to spot collectibles among stacks of ordinary handkerchiefs while honing your hunting skills for true vintage treasures.  Each guest receives a new or vintage hanky.

Museum doors open at 11:00 a.m.  Presentations begin at 2pm. $10 per person includes museum admission and refreshments. Rocky Mountain Quilt Museum members admitted free.

The Lookout Mountain Nature Center is celebrating “Bear Essentials” today.  Stop by anytime between 10:00 am to 12:00 pm to learn what Black Bears really eat. Touch a black bear pelt, smell their scat, and more! They are joking about smelling the scat but you can take a closer look.  More information. If you have questions, please call 720-497-7600.
