GMAHS_CrazyQuilt_compGMAHS offers the Clermont Country Quilt Registry, a program to document quilts that were made in Clermont Country, Ohio prior to 1950; or, 19th century quilts brought to the County by relocating families.

What’s included in the Registry?  The Registry will include all available history on each quilt, such as maker and/or family name, quilt pattern, size, fabric types, number of stitches per inch (SPI) and where the quilt is believed to have been sewn or made. Additionally, interesting history about the quilt, if available, will be recorded as part of a quilt’s page as well as a photograph.

Does it cost to register a quilt?  Yes, a $10 administration fee is required for each quilt registered.

How can I register a quilt?  Contact GMAHS at 513/248-0324; or email info@milfordhistory.net.

What do I get with my registration?  Each registrant will receive a copy of the respective Registry page and an identification label that can be attached to the quilt. The label will include the assigned Registry number and an area to list the maker’s name, family name, pattern, size and approximate date of completion.

Where will the Registry be maintained:  GMAHS will make a copy of the Registry available at its Library located at Promont; and, at the main branch of the Clermont Country Library in Batavia.
