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. And, as times have changes, we have used our talent to make other crafts — thereby becoming the Tuesday Morning Crafters. And some money received from the Craft Sales is used for the Crafts made by youngsters during the Olde Thyme Fayre. The rest of the sale money is donated to
the Museum.

And 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.

We even make our own tickets — so all money donated through ticket sales can be used to benefit the Museum.

Over $9500 has been donated from the Quilt Project since 2007.

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.
