Reno County Community Quilt Project

Let’s Make History!

Reno County government agencies and non-profit organizations are invited to join Hutchinson Public Library in telling stories through quilt blocks that celebrate our community’s diversity, spirit, and pride, and recognize the support services available to Reno County residents.

Participants will design a quilt square and tell the story of your organization and your process of making the quilt square. No quilting experience is necessary. Makerspace staff will facilitate matching quilters with organizations. Participants are encouraged to push their creative boundaries. The Hutchinson Library Makerspace staff will be available to advise participants on the technology and capabilities available at the Makerspace.

The Historic Voices Project
We’re teaming up with The Reno County Museum and their Historic Voices project, which will allow participants to create a historical video document about your story. The Historic Voices project is funded by the Changemakers at Work Grant from the Hutchinson Community Foundation.

Traveling Display
When we finish the quilt, a traveling display will be shared among the participants during 2023.

Volunteers Needed!
If you know a thing or two about sewing or quilting, we’d love to hear from you.  All experience levels are needed for this project. Fill out this form if you’d like to help!
