Holiday Bazaar

quilts for sale
We had a successful Holiday Bazaar selling numerous items that the quilters had made from mittens to baby quilts to embroidered pillow cases. The money raised will help us pay to have the roof redone on the old school house next summer. The county commissioners also made a very nice donation towards the roof costs and to help us get a new sign for the entrance to the Historical Village.

The following week we had our annual Christmas party. Each quilter had taken some remnant of a quilted piece and sewed it into a gift. Bonnie made hers into a lovely framed piece. There was a pillow and a table runner and a shawl with an eight-pointed quilted star stitched onto the back. The creativity of these women continues to amaze me even after a year of sewing with them. And their creativity is not limited to quilts but is evident in other parts of their lives – what they give to the community, to their families, to themselves. The Tobacco Valley is blessed to have these individuals.

About tvh56

I mostly live in Eureka, Montana and write two blogs. One is for the Tobacco Valley Board of History, a group composed of the most remarkable older women who quilt weekly to raise funds to maintain the Historical Village. I had to capture their stories with words and photos. And when I began a traveling bookstore as a small business, well, it only made sense to write about that too.
