Preserving the history of Bond County, Illinois and its communities

There are currently no plans for a 2023 BCHS Quilt Show

March 20, 2021 BCHS Quilt Show Cancelled Due to Covid-19

While it breaks our hearts to say this, Bond County Historical Society has cancelled our 2021 Quilt Show due to COVID-19 concerns and restrictions on large gatherings.

We wish things were different, but sadly they are not, so out of respect for the health and safety of our guests, the volunteers of the quilt committee and Historical Society, the potential vendors, and the employees of the venue, we are canceling this event.

Nadine Baldwin, chair of the Quilt Show committee, said we just can’t produce a quilt show in the current environment. We hope that we will be able to continue our tradition with a quilt show event in the future!
