The Dayton Historical Society partnered with the Dayton Friendship Quilters to host a quilt show and lost arts demonstrations on Saturday, Oct. 6. Gorgeous, colorful quilts of all patterns and descriptions were shown in two categories: quilts submitted by the maker and eligible for voting and a Times Gone By category– quilts made by someone else years ago.
Viewers cast one vote for their favorite of the 26 in the voting category. Winners were: First Place – Joan Thomas; Second Place – Delores Platt; and Third Place – Thelma Reed.
Parker Hall showcased spinner artisans demonstrating their skill on spinning wheels and weavers making table runners or scarves. Every step in converting fleece into clothing or household items was demonstrated.
The Old School Museum housed hand art demonstrations: crocheting and knitting. Visitors enjoyed touring the museum and the historical Jamison log cabin and eating the delicious homemade corn dogs, fried pies, cookies, and s’mores. Despite one short episode of pouring rain, the event was a great success.
