Our Quilt Club Sisters Send Happy Note to All
By Edith B. Crumb

That everyone in the corner should have a Merry Christmas was my sincere wish, but I think of the thousands of quilt-maker and interested readers which we feel we belong to our large and friendly circle. I do not think any had happier time than the Quilt Club Sisters (Mrs. Emmons Galton and Mrs. Arthur Fisher.) They have written a letter about it and the stationary has “Quilt Club Sisters” printed on the first line and their names printed below. I know that each of you will enjoy their letters so here it is:

Dear Miss Crumb:
Happy New Year Everybody! Here we are again, our hearts full of happiness that we feel as though we wanted to share a little bit with you and all of our Quilt Club Corner Members.
You know the “Corner” will always have its place in our hearts and, so, when something big happens we naturally think of “you all” first.

We want to tell you about our “big moment.” Well, it all happened on Dec. 25- our first Christmas together- something we had always dreamed of apart and after years and years of waiting and wondering, it finally took place.
What fun did we have! Can you picture these two sisters out on Harvard Road just having the time of their lives with our children all sitting on the floor around the lightened tree, looking over the gifts that Santa Claus had left? Really, friends, the house just rang out with laughter. Then peek in at us in the dining room, 11 of us all around the big table, for our first Christmas dinner together.

It was truly a glorious day-one we shall always remember; and how nice to know that it all leads back to that spot called the
Quilt Club Corner”

We are all for it one hundred percent, so let’s keep it going in a big way.
As our day closed, our thoughts went back to all of you in wishing you the best of everything for the coming year.

Sincerely yours,
The Quilt Club Sisters
Mrs. Arthur Fisher
Mrs. Emmons Galton

I am sure we should all be very happy to read that letter and to know that all of us shared in bringing those two sisters together. Of course, we were as surprised as they were; for we never thought when we started the Quilt Club Corner and looked forward to the first show that it would bring about anything so startling as the reunion of these sisters who have been separated for over 30 years. They are assured happiness for the coming year, for all they need is to be together to be happy and they tell me that not a day passes that they do not visit. I know that they will do their share toward keeping the Quilt Club Corner alive and making it the biggest ever and may I not expect the same from each of you?
On my desk Monday morning was one lone New Year’s card- a light green one with a coach-and-four- silhouette. It is from Mrs. Ann Pelkay 704 N Michigan Ave, Howell, Mich. this is her message: “I am sorry I am late with my Christmas wishes, but better late than not at all, so here they are- “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year’ and may the Corner live for a long time.
I am happy to say that I was at the Quilt party on the air on Dec. 11 and wasn’t it thrilling? Everything was arranged so beautifully

Send for Silhouette of Patchwork Lady
Silhouettes as quaint, old timey charmers take their place along with patch-work quilts. And when, for the mere asking, you can get the pattern for a silhouette of “A Lady Making a Patchwork Quilt” grab it!
The Beauty in the Home Editor has place this pretty Study in black and white on a leaflet with instructions on what to do with it-frame it or otherwise.
