"300 Years of Quilts" 
         Marsha Watro, teacher and quilter, gave a talk on the history of quilts and unveiled our newest acquisition, the Ewing Bicentennial Quilt.  It was created by the students and teachers of Ewing High School in preparation for the nation's 1976 Bicentennial Celebration.  Many of the handmade bed covers created by American women for the past 300 years are still on display.  Come view them during our regular hours on Wednesday or make an appointment to see them.
