Historic Church hosts Quilt and Fabric Art Show

Written By The Mountain Eagle on 4/17/24 | 4/17/24

The Middleburgh Reformed Church has been a presence in Middleburgh, N.Y. since 1732.   The first church structure, located on upper Main Street, was burned in the 1780 raid on the valley during the Revolutionary War.  The brick sanctuary that replaced it was built in 1786 and still serves as a place of worship on River Street in Middleburgh.

While it has been necessary to repair and remodel the sanctuary several times over the last 238 years, the simple beauty of the building is a blessing to all who enter its doors.  The buildings that originally surrounded the sanctuary have been replaced by the addition of a modern fellowship hall which serves the congregation and the community in many ways.

The Middleburgh Reformed Church is currently undertaking fundraising to upgrade the heating system. One of the events being planned is a Quilt and Fabric Art Show on May 17 and 18.  The historic sanctuary will be used to display many beautiful quilts and a wide variety of fabric art items such as embroidery, cross stitch, hooking, knitting, and other original works.   

There will be a modest admission fee to attend the show which will be open from noon to 4 PM on Friday, May 17  and 10 AM to 3 PM on Saturday, May 18.  Quilts donated by Ron & Edna Lower and Joan Youmans will be displayed and raffle tickets will be available. There will also be fabric art demonstrations on Saturday in the fellowship hall.  See ad in this paper for more details.
