January Memory Quilt on display

The January Quilt is now on display.  This quilt is a memory quilt and was made for Butch Ott by his sister-in-law, Patti Nelson from Carthage, Missouri, for his 60th birthday.  It is a collection of pictures and drawings depicting events in his life.  the design is original and was created to allow for the different sizes and scale of the items to be included.

The finished quilt was hand quilted with corn stalks in the borders.

This quilt is a result of listening to the stories of the people around us.  Memory quilts are a unique gift and just as much fun for those who plan them and sew them as the recipient of the quilts

The Materials Girls Quilt Guild meets the 2nd Monday of the month at the St. Peter Lutheran Church at 7:00pm.  All are welcome to join.

If school closes due to weather, we will close, too

Just a reminder that if the North Bend Public Schools are closed due to weather…..the library will close also.

If the school lets out early due to bad weather….we will close also.

Please keep that in mind before you go out in the weather or before you send your children to the library.

Stay safe everyone!
