"A Bundle of Joy" is this year's theme for the popular summer quilt and clothing show in the Wells Fargo Gallery at Folsom History Museum.
Antique children's quilts and vintage crib quilts featuring whimsical designs will be displayed alongside full-size anniversary and wedding quilts at the 35th annual exhibit.
Showcased are Victorian-era christening gowns, hand-sewn and embroidered infant and children's clothing, and antique and vintage toys. Wedding dresses and women's at-home attire will add to a picture of family life from by-gone eras.
The exhibit runs through August 31, 2014. The museum is located in the heart of historic old town Folsom at 823 Sutter Street.
The collection in Folsom Heritage Gallery tells the story of early Folsom inhabitants and the California Gold Rush. Nearby Pioneer Village is an outdoor living history venue with blacksmith demonstrations and panning for kids.
The museums are open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. Free parking is available on the street and at the nearby city garage. For more information go to folsomhistorymuseum.org.
