At the meeting last night Karen passed on some information about the possibility for us to visit the Valentine Richmond History Center. She has mentioned this in a couple of past meetings. The VRHC has an extensive textiles collection that includes about 200 quilts. She talked to them about the possibility of us getting a private viewing of the quilt collection. It would also include a tour of the house and galleries. We would schedule it sometime on the fall, maybe late October or November.
We can schedule a private tour of the house and collection but it requires 20 people minimum at $20 each ($400 paid in advance). Marian Moody and I (Vicki) have both been on such tours at the museum and both feel that $20 is a very small price to pay for the experience.
Before we schedule anything we need to survey the members to see if you are interested So please reply to this blog post answering 2 questions.
1) Do you want to go on the tour and willing to pay $20 to do it?
2) If the answer to #1 is yes, do you care/prefer if the tour is schedule for a weekday or Saturday? The tour will happen during the day. It's probably easier to schedule a week day but that may impact some members ability to attend.
Please let us know what you think.
