Matching Challenge Fund Raiser:

The Twinsburg Historical Society Quilters -- originally begun in response to 1976 when communities were asked to do something special for the nation's Bicentennial Celebration. Carol Richner Terrill, Marian Munn and others started meeting on Tuesdays to quilt. The group quilted tops for others and charged a modest fee.
 As times have changed, we have used our talents to make other crafts-- thereby becoming the Tuesday Morning Crafters.
Now, all the quilts since 2007 have been completed & donated to the Museum free of charge.
The fabric (+batting & backing), time spent hand piecing the top, & time spent hand quilting the 3 layers are all donated. (This year the batting & backing were donated by Monica Godinsky Balamenti.
We even make our own tickets -- so all money donated through ticket sales can be used to benefit the Museum.
                     $5.00   Donation per ticket                                     Drawing in December  2022

We need your help. The parking lot behind the Barn and Museum will be paved this summer and we need to pay our fair share. In addition both the furnaces on the museum are aging out. We are looking to our members to help if you can. An anonymous donor is putting up a matching grant for this project. The donor will match donations, dollar for dollar up to $1,500 for this project. With your help we want to raise $3,000 by the Olde Tyme Fayre September 10, 11, and 12. You can send the money by check or drop it off on at any Open House. All donatins are welcome. We will also be having our special TwinsDay Open House on Friday, August 5 from 12:00 to 5:00.

Charitable Giving

The Historical Society relies upon the generous financial support of private individuals & of our local businesses to help us preserve and care for Twinsburg’s historical legacy. 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.
Bequests in your will, trust or by beneficiary designation cost you nothing now. You can hold on to your assets for as long as you need them & you can change your beneficiaries at any time.
Leaving a financial gift in your will to charity is not done on a whim. It is a deeply personal decision that reflects your values and beliefs. It is an easy thing to do. Just contact your lawyer or financial advisor & tell them that you appreciate the Twinsburg Historical Society & want to support it for future generations with a gift by bequest in your will.

The 2022 Twinsburg Historical Society Quilt is named "Shining Stars" and we made it into a "flip" quilt. 
The stars were found in someone's Great Aunt's attic and donated to us. Then it was up to us to decide how the stars could be used in a more updated way.  For the "star" side we chose a contemporary print. The "flip" side fabric is more sky like - with a print that emphasizes the hand quilting.
