The show, designed and organized by Ralph Wileman, is the association’s contribution to “Minds Wide Open,” Virginia’s 2010 celebration of Women in the Arts. The exhibit is a salute to the North Halifax Quilting Ladies and focuses on the history and purpose of the group and information on the art of quilting. Pictured is quilting lady Jettie Waller. The matriarch of the group, Jettie resides in the North Staunton community and is ninety-two years of age. The mother of four reports that quilting is a joy and helps her continue to feel productive. Once, after having broken her right hand, she learned to use her left and continued quilting. The exhibit will remain on display through May 31 and is open during Prizery business hours and during events.
