The Bandy Heritage Center for Northwest Georgia's new exhibit "Threads of Home: The Sandra Mahs Collection" is now open at the Center's Old Freight Depot Gallery located at 305 S. Depot Street in Dalton, Georgia.

In the 1900s, hand-tufted and machine-tufted bedspreads profoundly shaped the fortunes, futures, and history of the people of Northwest Georgia. Originally a source of pin money for women, by the Depression, tufting insured the economic survival of many families in this area.

This exhibit showcases the collection of Sandra Mahs of Edwardsville, Illinois, who, over the course of twenty years, scoured the antique shops and flea markets of Illinois and Missouri on a quest to acquire bedspreads and specialty pieces that not only exemplified the ingenuity and craftsmanship of Northwest Georgia's people, but also reflected her own family's roots. Sandra realized that these objects of Northwest Georgia's textile heritage needed to "come home," and in 2015, she generously donated the collection to the Bandy Heritage Center.

The exhibit will be on display through Sept. 30, 2018. The Old Freight Depot Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.
