quilting     Both the Ford and Edison families collected handmade quilts, embroidered linens and other textiles. Continuing the tradition, members of the Southwest Florida Quilters Guild and members of the Southwest Embroidery Guild meet monthly at the Edison & Ford Winter Estates to demonstrate their work and answer questions. In the warmer months, the members meet inside the Edison Caretaker’s House and in the more temperate months, activity moves out of doors to the porches of the historic homes.

   This is FREE to Edison Ford Members and for non-members it is included in a Edison Ford Complete Tour admission. Come join in the fun!  Items are available for purchase.
