The Catskill Mountain Quilters, which meet every Monday at the Erpf House in Arkville, completed the quilt which had been started by Jackie Reither of Margaretville. Jackie, with several other quilt enthusiasts, had pieced the top during a workshop sponsored by Cornell Cooperative Extension several years ago. Recently, she gave the partially finished bed cover to the local quilting group to complete. Peg Barnes, who led the Extension workshop, is a member of the Catskill Mountain Quilters.

The group has made and donated countless quilts to area non-profit groups and institutions to help them raise funds. “The Historical Society is grateful to all of the talented women who worked on this beautiful quilt, which is destined to be a family heirloom for the lucky winner,” commented HSM President Diane Galusha.
