THE QUAINT 4,500 sq ft BUILDING IS FOR SALE
Until the building is sold, The Florida Quilt Museum will be open each year during Trenton's Annual Quilt Festival held on the third Saturday of March. The next Quilt Festival will be March 21, 2020.
Marie Miller, from Sarasota, will once again have her fabulous selection of antique quilts for sale during the festival.
Stephanie Metts will also have a broad selection of antique quilts on display and for sale.
The Florida Quilt Museum is located in Trenton’s oldest commercial building at 409 N Main Street, a 1910 dry goods store that once sold horse collars and coffins.
Long time quilters Teddy Pruett, an internationally recognized quilt and textile historian and Kathy Cray formerly a member of the board with The American Quilt Study Group, have worked tirelessly to bring outstanding exhibits to The Florida Quilt Museum for visitors to study and enjoy. Kathy (on the ladder) and Teddy are shown hanging a past exhibit of Basket Quilts that Kathy acquired from the American Quilt Study Group.
The Florida Quilt Trail originates in Trenton and encompasses twenty nearby cities. Five of Trenton's Quilt Trail Blocks, painted by Florida Folk Artist Janet Moses, are on the South wall of The Florida Quilt Museum
