Cornerites Make Many Resolutions
By Edith B Crumb
Resolutions were flying faster than fingers making quilt stitches at the Quilt Club Corner meeting yesterday and if these are carried out there will be heaps more quilts at  the next show than ever before entered.

Mrs. A Klein was not sewing on anything yesterday  but is planning to start a quilt early next week. Mrs. Pearl Rhoads has one read to quilt and two all quilted ready to bind. She is the one who usually has 10 or more quilts in the making and each in a separate box so that when she gets tired of working on one she gets out another.

Mrs. T.L. Murdock is doing a great many tatted and crocheted pieces now but she has enough friendship blocks to make an entire quilt and it wont be long before she will begin to put these together.
I noticed that Mrs. Gabriel Baecheroot was working on a quilt which she started last fall and she is probably determined to finish that before starting another one.

The reason that Mrs. Nellie Welkie has not been working on quilts lately is that she was a busty making her holiday cookie. She made 1150 and they were not easy to make either, for they were not all the same. She made little cookies in the shape of trees, Scotties little girls stars, crescents and all sorts of other fascinating shapes.

Pearl Rhoads made 11 pounds of fruit cake so of course her sewing was laid aside for awhile.
I even hear that Mrs. Maude S Raymond had to stop making crocheted stars because she was so busy getting ready for the holidays.

Mrs. Leotine Hardy gave us a happy surprise yesterday by drooping in for a little visit. Mrs. Mary Strobilius has started the year right by coming to the first meeting and we hope that she will be able to come every week. She should bring Mrs. Lena Clinton and Mrs. Josephine Coscia with her.

Mrs. Maude S Marx brought a house guest to the meeting Mrs. J.S. Root, 111 South Ninth Street, La Crosse Wisconsin. Mrs. Root joined the Quilt Club even though she is not able attend the meetings. We hope that when she is in Detroit again she will come to the meeting with Mrs. Marx.

Miss Mary Gathers brought her sister, Mrs. Helen Lesnau 1628  Church Street, to the meeting.  
This is only the beginning and I am looking forward to letters from you telling what you are going to do in the way of quilt making
during 1941. Tell me so that I can tell the others through the column.

Mrs. Eva Schwab said that she had a letter from Miss myrtle Lang, Eloise and Miss Lang had so many birthday greeting cards that it will be impossible for her to answer each one. But she wants all of you who through of her to know that she appreciates your generosity.
