Meeting Day Program

Rochester Museum & Science Center - "Stories Behind the Quilts at RMSC"
This month's program will be a presentation by people from the Rochester Museum and Science Center entitled, "Stories Behind the Quilts at the Museum and Science Center."
GVQC has a long connection to RMSC. The first meeting in January 1936 was sponsored by the Rochester Museum of Arts and Sciences, predecessor to today’s Rochester Museum and Science Center (RMSC). The club started with eleven members. GVQC was organized by Mrs. Gladys Reid Holton, curator of History of the Rochester Museum of Arts and Sciences in the 1950’s and 1960’s and retiring from the RMSC in 1976.
In 2002 the Rochester Museum and Science Center RMSC Quilt Project reported that Genesee Valley Quilt Club partnered with The RMSC during the late 1990’s and into the 2000’s when club members volunteered over a 1000 hours to assist in the documentation of quilt collections at the Rochester Museum and Science Center. This included club members creating a replica of the Susan B. Anthony quilt as a gift to the Susan B. Anthony House.
