McCRACKEN — The exhibit “Kansas Women and their Quilts” is now showing at the McCracken Public Library.
McCracken resident Rose Diehl notes that everyday objects have stories to tell about the past. This exhibit explores Kansas history through the quilts women made and used, from the early days of settling Kansas to the recycling of the 1930s to our contemporary world. The Great Depression of the 1930s is explored through the use of feed sacks for clothing and quilt making.
This show will be at the library through Friday, July 27. Library hours are 2-5 p.m. Monday, Tuesday and Friday; 9 a.m. to noon Wednesday and 10 a.m. to noon Saturday. For more information call the library, 785-394-2444 .
