The books “Quilts – The Last Exhibit” have arrived. This is a collaborative of photos taken the day of the Fire and some after the fire, and the quilter’s stories. This community keeps on giving.

We (mostly the Quilters who had quilts in The Last Exhibit) gathered around and signed each other’s books.

Here Jana Russon presents a SPONSORED book to the Adair County Public Library. The way this works is, Barb and Dale Stone purchased a copy for $35, profits going to KAA, then they gave it back to be placed in a VENUE where folks can read and enjoy it without purchase. We thank our Sponsors.
