Quilters’ Hall of Fame Celebration in Marion, Indiana, July 16 – 19, 2009

The Quilters Hall of Fame Celebration of Marie Webster’s birthday is  in Marion,  Indiana, the weekend of July 18, 2009.  The honoree this year is Merikay Waldvogel.  There are various activities scheduled….classes and quilts.  I have not been able to locate a web site that gives the schedule of activities for this year’s event.

Activities include the Midwest  Fabric Study Group’s meeting in the Days Inn conference room.  The hotel is located at the intersection of  SR 18 and Interstate 69, 3 miles east of downtown Marion. Members Linda Pumphrey and Sharon Pinka will be previewing their presentations  for American Quilt Study Group’s San Jose 2010 meeting, and there will be show-and-tell.  This is open to the public.

Also, the Howard County Historical Society located at the Seiberling Mansion, 1200 W. Sycamore in Kokomo, invites everyone to see their  antique quilts exhibit.  The hours are Tue s. – Sat. 1-4.  They will have
special hours on Sunday, the 19th, for Quilters Hall of Fame  attendees, from 10:30am – 4pm.  Kokomo is south of Marion and 35 miles west on SR 35.

    I live in Marion and am a former board member of TQHF. We had a great Celebration this year–wonderful teachers and fantastic antique quilts. In addition to Merikay Waldvogel’s exhibit, Rosalind Perry, marie Webster’s granddaughter, hung the family quilts made by Marie. It was breathtaking!
