Apple Harvest Festival hosts quilt expert

September 28, 2012 by  

Visitors to the Apple Harvest Festival have a some treats in store: the opportunity to enjoy apple cobbler and ice cream at a 1950’s price, and to bring along their favourite family quilt to have it appraised by an acknowledged industry expert.

The Apple Harvest Festival is part of the Tigard Historical Associations annual events. At this year’s festival the historical association has brought in a quilting expert, Amelia Endorf, that will be present within John Tigard House during this festive day to document, free of charge, quilts presented to her by families in the area. During this period, quilts that the association has collected over the years will also be on exhibit. While parents are waiting for their quilt documents or viewing the display of quilts, children can spend their time playing with old fashion games and toys, as well as learn how to operate an apple peeler and an apple press, plus as a special treat, people can enjoy apple cobbler with ice cream for 50 cents a plate. This is a great family event.

Poster printing and brochure printing may have been used to promote this old fashion festival to the people in the area. Admission to this event is free and everyone is welcome to attend. The Apple Harvest Festival is held on Saturday, September 29th between 1pm and 4pm at the John Tigard House Museum located at 103rd and Canterbury Lane in Tigard, Oregon.
