Donor Grace Blattert, remembers her grandmother Mary Bertrand this way,

  In the 20s my grandmother lived only a block from our house, and on her "quilting day" I would thread about 50 needles before going to school, again at luch hour, and immediately after school. The six to eight women never lost any time from their work. The hostess of the day served lunch and a mid afternoon snack - in shifts!
