Our First Raffle Quilt Preserved For The Future

Susan Curtis, our member who is the Collections Manager of the Emily Reynolds Costume Collection at NDSU, has added our first raffle quilt to that collection. What an honor! Someday, someone will marvel at that sampler quilt from way back. She wrote this in her letter:

“Thank you to the Fargo Moorhead Quilters for donating your 1981 raffle sampler quilt to the Emily Reynolds Historic Costume Collection. It is a wonderful example of a quilt of that era. It also helps us preserve the history of your group’s activities and is a welcome addition to our permanent collection. We also appreciate the inclusion of a copy of your pattern book for the two 1981 raffle quilts, this adds so much to the history of the quilt and will be a great aid to researchers.”

We are so grateful to the quilt’s winner Charlotte Sailors, for taking good care of it and returning it to us after 40 years!
