For centuries quilts have been made for the purpose of keeping warm, but for Nancy Smith, it’s the inherent beauty of the quilt that has attracted her. Ms. Smith, of the Crystal Coast Quilters Guild, will conduct a demonstration on this popular craft at the Beaufort Historic Site on Thursday, August 4th from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm.

Quilting, a method of sewing that dates back to the 1100s, originated in China, and was supposedly brought to Europe by Crusaders. Quilting does not appear to have been done in Europe much before the 12th century, and is usually thought to have been brought back from the Middle East by the returning Crusaders. However, a recent discovery from Germany indicates that quilted objects may have been recognized during the Dark Ages
