Alton, Mo. – Once again, Alton, Missouri, brought a quilt turning to the Walnut Festival. This is a prized event honoring many hours of delicate labor.
As the 34th Annual Walnut Festival got underway, attention was drawn up the street to the Community Worship Center. At 10:30 am, those interested were allowed in to watch a quilt turning. Beautiful pieces of handcrafted works were laid up to view.
Susan Howie of Fayetteville, North Carolina, wore a handmade “Housecoat of Many Colors.”
Another item of interest was a quilt. It will be auctioned Saturday, November 9, 2019, between 8:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. The city of Thomasville, Missouri, put the quilt together immediately following the flood of the spring, 2017. This will be auctioned at the Thomasville Christmas Bazaar, where several craft items, Christmas items, and foodstuffs will be sold.
