For many years, a hand-sewn quilt was one of the only tangible ways a woman could leave her mark on history. Fifth-generation quilter and Maplewood resident Sarah Izzo will coordinate this informal display which will feature a variety of traditional, vintage and art quilts from her family and her own hand, the collection of the Durand-Hedden House and that of other local quilters and collectors. The Maplewood Historical Quilt, sewn by the members of the Maplewood Service League and presented to the township in 1976, will also be on view. Both young and old visitors can try their hand at gluing or stitching squares.

Come to the Durand-Hedden House on Sunday, Oct. 17 to learn about the critical Revolutionary War battle of 1780 that was fought just down the road from here, in Vauxhall, the Short Hills, Springfield and Connecticut Farms (Union).
Historian John Kieser will bring to life this often-overlooked conflict, in which the New Jersey militia held off the British and prevented them from getting to Washington’s troops in Morristown.
