National Quilting Day
Date When Celebrated : Third Saturday in March
National Quilting Day celebrates fabulous quilts and those who make them. Historically a ladies hobby, quilting is a skill that produces warm and beautiful results.
Today is a day to recognize and appreciate the quiltmakers, the skill and the warm and the results. If you are a quiltmaker, spend a minute to recognize and appreciate that you have truly been blessed with a special skill. If you are not a quilt maker, wrap yourself into a quilt and enjoy the warmth.
History and Origin of "National Quilting Day":
The National Quilting Association started National Quilting Day in 1991. Their members passed a resolution at the 22and Annual Show in Lincoln, Nebraska, on June 1991.
This is referred to as a "National" day. We did not find any congressional records or presidential proclamations for this day.
Thought for Today: Light travels faster than sound. That's why some people appear bright until they open their mouth.
