Submitted by Jane B McWilliams on Wed, 09/12/2012 - 3:35pm
Northfield Historical Society (NHS) is giving you the opportunity to become the proud of owner of a handsome, handmade quilt. Joan Christensen of Mankato, mother of NHS Treasurer Jim Christensen and a longtime quilter, has donated the quilt to NHS for a fundraising raffle. The pattern was inspired by a family garden on the family homestead in North Dakota. She completed the quilt in 2006.
“We are delighted by this gracious donation to the historical society,” said Hayes Scriven, executive director of NHS. “Quilts are a wonderful medium for story-telling. Funds raised from this event will help support the many exhibits we have planned for next year.” The quilt is on view at Northfield Historical Society Museum Store, 408 Division. You are invited to stop and take a look. Tickets are $2 or six for $10. The raffle will extend through October 15
