We’re celebrating quilts throughout March at the Horry County Museum. Join us for the film Hearts & Hands: The Influence of Women & Quilts on American Society. This film presents a vital part of American history, the role played by women and their textiles in the nineteenth century’s great movements and events including the Civil War, the abolition of slavery, westward expansion, the suffrage and temperance movements. The film explores the astonishing lives and accomplishments of ordinary, often anonymous women as well as chronicling the lives of extraordinary individuals such as Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Keckley, Frances Willard and Abigail Scott Duniway. The film is free to the public on loop all day, Thursday, March 11th, at the Horry County Museum, located at 805 Main Street in Conway.
