description
Mary Schafer was a quiltmaker and quilt historian. In the early 1960s, through her quilting magazines, she discovered round robins, the practice of swapping patterns through the mail, and subsequently participated in numerous round robins. Through these exchanges of packages and letters, important friendships were formed and Mary became a part of an active network of quilters. This letter is from a series of correspondence with historian and pattern collector Cuesta Benberry.
