- Divine Providence quilt show displays quilts of 35 artisans
- Posted June 12, 2012 midnight
- Thirty-five artisans displayed over 50 quilts at the Divine Providence Quilt Show in May. The quilts varied in patterns, color, size and function. While some were made as heirlooms, others were made to keep families warm in the days when most bedrooms didn't have heat. Quilter, Alma Berberich, displayed a quilt she made from wool suits. The display spurred reminisce about the days when flour came in colorful sacks later used for dresses as well as quilts. Look for a feature story on quilters Elaine Haala and Mickey Fischer in a coming edition of the Herald-Dispatch.
