The 2021 Historical Society Quilt is named "Twinsburg Dresden Plates".

The 52 "Plates" were found in Carol Richner Terrill's attic. All 52 8" plates have 20 pieces plus a center. The Dresden Plate Pattern was probably devised to use leftover cotton fabric pieces when dresses, shirts, pajamas and aprons were made.


Twinsburg Historical Society Quilters - originally began in response to 1976 when communities were asked to do something special for the nations Bicentennial Celebration. Carol Richner Terril, Marian Munn and others started meeting on Tuesdays to quilt. The group quilted tops for others and charged a modest fee.


And as times have changed, we have used our talents to make other crafts - there by becoming the Tuesday Morning Crafters.


And now, all quilts since 2003 have been completed & donated to the Museum free of charge.


The fabric (+batting & backing), time spent piecing the top & quilting the 3 layers are all donated.


We even make out own tickets - so all money donated through ticket sales can be used to benefit the Museum. This years tickest have been decorated with Dresden plates by Kim Hrabak Mazey. There are 8 different "Plates" used on the tickets.


Tickets are on sale at all Open Houses and Events, and anyone interested in buying via mail can leave a message on the museum answering machine: 330-487-5565

We hope that you will help your Twinsburg Historical Society continue its important work by considering us in your will, trust or by beneficiary designation. 
History is preserved not through government institutions but through the actions of selfless individuals who became aware of a momentous event or were touched personally, then inspired to do what they could do to save it. As a society we grow learning from our past and we hope you will join us in preserving this knowledge for the future.
