The Waterfest Quilt Show by the Calico Quilters drew many visitors this past weekend, but perhaps these two were most surprised by the awesome quilts on display! Deborah Calloway and Vanessa Williams found their names on the Museum's own Wyman School Quilt, created for the Bicentennial Year of 1976! . They were two of the many children who created quilt blocks for this cherished quilt. Carol Bailey of Calico Quilters also found the block created by her daughter, Laurie Bailey.

We hope this project also provides some added charm to the local streetscape on our busy corner of the historic downtown! While this was going on, across the street, the Atlas Saloon is getting a charming and more welcoming facade, too. Combined with the new restaurant right across Main Street from us and the still relatively new expansion at the New Age Salon across Broadway from us, this is the happening intersection in the heart of our downtown! ...
