WHAM – Textile Tenacity: Charitable Quilting In Ontario

Runs November 2, 2024 – February 20, 2025

Quilting if often thought of as a nostalgic hobby with a homey purpose. The truth is far more complicated. Quilts have been used for fundraising purposes for over a century. The funds that community quilting projects have raised have helped to build churches, equip hospitals and win wars. This exhibition explores this other purposeful side of quilting and the tenacity women show by raising money through crafts when their community is in need.

WHAM is holding an Opening Gala on Sunday, November 5, 2024 beginning at 2:00pm. Everyone is welcome to attend.
