World War One Wednesday - The Quilt
The Red Cross Signature Quilt, embroidered with the names of World War One veterans from Dodge County, Minnesota is all set to be presented, and we have a date and time!
Sunday, November 11th, at 3:30 pm, at the Dodge County Historical Society Museum in Mantorville, MN, my sister-in-law and I will be presenting the quilt to be added to the museum collection, and I'll be signing copies of A Bride Sews With Love in Needles, CA, which was inspired by my first visit to the DCHS museum.
Just before the presentation, there is an honor ceremony at the Civil War Memorial in Wasioja, just a few miles from Mantorville, at 2:00 pm.
If you're able, I'd love to see you at both places! Come to honor our American Veterans, and stay for the quilt presentation. Tour the museum, including the grave in the basement, see the lovely quilts and dresses, and visit with the DCHS board members and patrons.
