Clinton resident Joan Klossner will present "Quilts: Narratives of Women and History" at 1 p.m. Saturday in the Oneida County Historical Society, 1608 Genesee St., Utica. Admission is $2.
Joan Klossner is a retired schoolteacher, artist, and historical society volunteer. She will discuss the role that quilts played in women’s lives and how their quilts reflected the times in which they lived. This is a topic on which she has previously written; in addition to designing and installing an exhibit on quilts and domestic textiles at the historical society in 2011, she also authored a companion booklet that featured quilts from the society’s collection.
