Maxine Hendrick’s Story Quilt
Fifty people attended a story telling session in Muncey at the Antler River complex tonight to share history and old traditions. Maxine Hendrick chuckled about how she was initially puzzled by the idea of a quilt telling a story. Then she realized that she owned one. She showed the crowd at the Antler River Seniors complex a beautiful story quilt that was lovingly stitched as a 40th wedding anniversary gift from her family.
Quilts are the medium for learning and sharing. Women of Chippewas of the Thames, Moravian of the Thames, Munsee-Delaware, and Oneida are exploring themes for a War of 1812 quilt.
What an amazing evening. Thank you to all the women who cooked, baked, served, told stories and shared their history and culture.
