If you love antique quilts, don’t miss the Bed Turning presentations at the Jake Jackson Museum of Weaverville on Saturday, Oct. 6. See antique quilts as they were designed to be seen  — on a bed!

The antique rope bed will be spread with a dozen lovely quilts covering more than 100 years of quilting history. Quilts from 1845 through 1970 will be displayed. Museum volunteers in period costume will turn down each quilt one by one, while explaining the history of the quilt.

There will be a presentation at 10 and 11 a.m. with another at 2 p.m. At 1 p.m. there will be a special showing for the members of the Northern California Professional Business Women Association who are holding their annual meeting in Weaverville this year.

The bed turning at the museum is part of the Autumn in the Alps Quilt Show when the historic district of Weaverville will be hung with colorful quilts from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The Jake Jackson Museum is located at 780 Main St. (Highway 299) in Weaverville and is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily with a $2 admittance charge.
