News Quilt Club Corner Has Record Attendance
By Edith B. Crumb
The fall session for the quilters started out with enthusiasm yesterday. Attendance at the Quilt Club Corner meeting was about double the usual number and the good old custom of exchanging patches and monograming friendship blocks was going on at a great rate.

Quilt-makers who became new member are Mrs. Agnes Mallouch 553 Manistique Avenue Mrs. John Binsfield 1824 Hampton Rose, Grosse Pointe Woods (Mrs. Mallouch's daughter) Mrs. Wm Ross 2669 Malborough Avenue, and Mrs. Roy Fringer 12939 Devoe Avenue, Wyandotte.

Mrs. Anna Dupure brought a pair of appliqued pillow slips and two handed crochet hot pan holders for the Nancy Belle's bazaar.

This seems to be bazaar season. Next Tuesday members of the Women's Association of Bushnell Congregation Church Southfield and Grand River avenues will hold a tea and exhibit from 1:30 to 8:30 pm. This exhibit will include quilts, embroidered articles, laces, crocheted spreads, needle point and antiques.

Mrs. Fred Bollens is chairman of a committee of 10 which represents the 175 members are from North and South Rosedale Park and Grandmont sections.

Next Friday the women of St. Marks Church, East Jefferson at Garland Avenue will hold their fall fair. Mrs. H.A. Dorman is chairman of the fair, which will open at noon and last until 10 p.m. Luncheon and dinner will be served.
Fruit and flower arrangements, canned goods, baked goods, embroideries, laces, quilts and hooked rugs will be included. The young people are planning a hobby corner and there will be shuffle board and checkers for the men.

Yesterday we had a quilt exhibit of our own at the Quilt Club Corner meeting. There was only one quilt but there was enough work on it to make three or four, for it was the one which Mrs. Charles Voelker copied from a museum piece.
