QUILT HISTORIAN SPEAKER AT THE FEBRUARY MEETING
Fawn Valentine, an author and quilt historian was our guest speaker. Audience members were asked to bring an old quilt for what Valentine termed "quilt readings". "Quilting is an art form that seems to be very popular with our friends, quilts have not only sentimental value but also monetary value. Valentine is the author of the book "West Virginia Quilts and Quiltmakers"
