Work Day at the Museum

Wednesday, March 13th was the first official work day at the Museum here in town.  Tracy and Charlotte worked on entering the information from three quilts.  Two of them were signature quilts and this took some time and lots of ingenuity as to what does this name look like its spelled as.  Remember the next time you are doing a signature block - print or embroider clear, precise letters for the "blind" people 50 years from now that will be wanting to read it.

Lorraine, Judy and Vevia measured, vacuumed and sewed the protective sheeting to one quilt.  The museum employees have put a lot of work into researching acceptable procedures for storing quilts.  They did inform us that every 4 years or so, it seems someone comes up with a better way so don't be surprised if all of this has to be changed someday.  Yuck!

Here is the first quilt completely done and pictures taken to document the quilt.
Special thanks goes to Dianne for getting supplies around and working with us to get rid of kinks in the plans.  Thank you Jeff for your assistance in the tall and heavy areas.
And THANK YOU to each of the quild members who were able to donate their time for this community service project - 10 hours and 50 minutes combined today.  Please see Vevia if you are interested in helping, there are about 30+ quilts to do, so plenty for everyone.
Please Note:  The library is looking for queen and king white cotton sheets for this project.  Will be able to use full and twin also, but queen and kings very much needed.
