Jeff Falkingham book update

I recveived an email from Jeff stating his second book is currently at the printer with a scheduled release date of January 1. Xlibris, his publisher, tells him they should have hard copies of the book during the week of January 19th. He is tentatively scheduled to be at the Browns Valley Library the morning of January 24th. We are going to try to work it out so Jeff can be here at the library that same afternoon. Watch for more details and a definate time later.

Quilt Winner

Joan Reiffenberger was the lucky winner of the New Year's Reflection quilt made by Viola Mehlhop of Ortonville. The quilt was yellow and blue and 85" x 75". She used about 20 yards of material. It took her six weeks to cutt and piece with the machine. She used 2 1/2 spools quilting thread. Started quilting on August 16th and finished on September 28th. It took her a total of 112 1/2 hours! Then she used 750 yards thread for the hand quilting! What a wonderful job Vi did. The Friends of the Ortonville Library certainly appreciated her making and donating this quilt to us. Look at the pictures on this site to see the winner with Vi.
