Betty Lou Stone

Museum Docent Betty Lou Stone shows a 19th-century crazy quilt now on view and available for purchase at the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History.

In May and June, the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History held a display and sale of historic quilts from the Bega Lighting Collection. Twelve of the 16 quilts displayed were sold, and the Lynda Fairly Carpinteria Arts Center, who had received the quilts as a donation from Bega, has given its remaining quilts in the collection to the Carpinteria Valley Museum of History for a continuation of the exhibition and sale. With individual quilts valued from between $200 and $2,000, the public sale seeks 30 percent to 50 percent of their appraised value. The History Museum will receive a portion of the proceeds for any quilt sold. Museum visiting hours are Tuesday to Saturday 1 to 4 p.m. For more information, call (805) 684-3112.
