On Saturday September 30 the exhibitors and their families will participate in a special “Celebration of Youth Day” in TMFD, touring the department and the International Quilt Study Center & Museum, meeting and working with department faculty in mini-workshops and joining in a public reception in their honor that will take place in Room 11 of the Home Economics building on UNL’s east campus, beginning at 3:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend this event free of charge. During the reception each 4-H student whose work was chosen for the Hillestad exhibition will speak briefly about the selected work and its inspiration and execution.
