Since 1982, the Friends of Royal Alberta Museum Society (FRAMS) has opened inclusive and accessible pathways to explore the wonders of the Royal Alberta Museum. While a museum contains many exciting and rare artifacts, it is the stories behind the artifacts that truly connect us to the past. These stories create connections across space and time. This is evident in the stories captured in Alberta Quiltmakers and Their Quilts. FRAMS is proud to facilitate the publishing of this seminal work by Lucie Heins. As you learn about and admire these beautiful quilts, I hope you will find that historic connection that speaks to you.
