Each year, the BNHV holds several large events that are open to the public, such as Civil War Days, Scottish Festival, Harvest Festival and others. The Amherst Quilters Guild is asked to conduct demonstrations during these events by working on their own personal project or a group project. Guild members are asked to donate at least two hours of their time, and as an adjunct of the Museum, we are committed to providing this service through our constitution. Demonstrators are admitted into the event at no charge, and can spend as much time as they wish before or after their commitment to enjoy the day’s events.

Sign-up sheets are normally available at the monthly guild meeting before the event, or by contacting
