July, 2018 - Linda Krasfic, Baby Quilts

The Sherman County local Artist Series is featuring Quilting by Linda Krafsic for the month of July at the Sherman County Historical Museum.  Linda learned to sew as a member of her 4-H club and while attending Home Economics Class at Sherman County High School.  Growing up Linda made many of her own clothes but realized in her 20's that some clothes could be purchased for less than what it cost to make them and her projects turned to making a few simple quilts before finding a new hobby.

 Linda put her sewing on the back burner for a number of years when she took up the hobby of counted cross stitch until her eyes no longer focused well on close-up hand work.  After she and her husband retired and began spending their winters in Arizona, Linda's Arizona neighbor got her interested in quilting.  She enjoyed making table runners and baby or lap quilts since they didn't take much time to make and they made good gifts.  Linda has donated quilts for different fund raisers and after her brother Dean Macnab received chemotherapy the Celilo Center in The Dalles, she donated a quilt to Celilo Center.

 Please visit the museum to see Quilts by Linda Krafsic. There is no charge for this exhibit which is on display in the lobby of the museum for the month of July.The award-winning Museum in Moro is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily through October.
