Thanks From Historic Centerville
Our Quilt and Needlework Show during Archway Days was the best attended in a long time and could not have been done without the support of many people.
A special thanks goes to all who brought their projects for us to display. We had more needlework this year than in the past and the quilts submitted were beautiful.
There were volunteers without whose help we could not have had such a great show. Thanks to Dorothy Brasier, Alberta Conner, Karen Jones, Ruth Bane, and Debbie Grimme (MainSource Bank) for volunteering their time to take tickets, supervise the flea market, and answer questions.
The Board from Historic Centerville who hung the quilts – Paul Elstro, Ruth Bane, Charlie Bane, and Charlie Weise worked very hard. These people put the quilts on the rods and spent the evening on ladders to make the quilts look as great as they did.
The flea market went very well. Many attendees found some great bargains there. A special thanks to all those who donated items to be sold.There were crafters in the side yard making the day more enjoyable for many.
Carolyn Lafever, Wayne County Historian, created several interesting displays in the Salisbury Court House. The antique quilts there added a special touch to the event.
We are looking forward to another great quilt show next year.
