Preservation Detectives Presents The Keeping Quilt: Stories, Art and Clues to the Past

Museum at Eldridge Street

12 Eldridge Street
New York, NY 10002

Discover the traditions of The Keeping Quilt and create your own!

 A shirt, a nightdress, a babushka, and an old apron, are stitched together in Patricia Polacco's The Keeping Quilt to create a quilt of memories - and a tradition - that is passed down to four generations of women in Patricia's family. On Sunday, February 28th from 11am - 1 pm, Preservation Detectives can create their own traditions as they hear this beautiful, award winning story and follow clues that piece together the traditions found in Polacco's  book with the traditions of the  historic Eldridge Street Synagogue. Families join Teaching Artist Sharon Gross and create a quilt that celebrates your own traditions.
