Calling all quilters and those who admire quilts! 

Jean Wakely, will talk about the Jewell Wolk Story Quilt Project, which is dedicated to the memory of her mother, Betty Jewell Wolk, on Saturday, March 10:00 a.m., in the Northfield Public Library meeting room

 Over the course of twenty-five years, Jewell completed nine quilts and began a final, tenth quilt. Each quilt tells a unique story about some aspect of women's lives and work.
Jewell was an extraordinary artist and creative storyteller. Founder of the famous Montana Storytelling Project, she knew how to tell a story. The project seeks to show how each quilt came into being and the stories that are associated with each scene or vignette pictured on the quilt.

The program is free and open to the public.
