What a busy Fall Foliage weekend, so many places to go and so much to see. We had a wonderful turnout at the museum for our annual quilt show. The total number of quilts on display was 52, which made for a room full of color and patterns. Museum visitors had the chance to vote for a favorite, proving to be difficult with so many to choose from. Mary Jane Fast’s “Twilled Flower Stars,” quilt with hand twilling, was the crowd favorite. “Cathedral Windows,” shown by Robbie Powell and “Eastern Star,” shown by Sue Lynn Krehbiel were top favorites as well. Thank you to all of you who showed quilts, we could not have had such a successful show without your participation. This show happens with the help of so many volunteers, thank you to; Ilene Floyd, Sue Lynn Krehbiel, Jerry Pundt, Janet Parnell, Maureen (Mo) Scott and Delynne Dunn.


“Hometown Heroes,” is the theme of our local Hemphill County 4-H photography students. What a perfect way to show appreciation for those that influence the lives of these young adults. If you did not get a chance to see their show during Fall Foliage, stop in and vote for a favorite.

Cara Dawn Macias will have her art show in the gallery room through mid-December. You might find something you can’t live without.

“The museum will host a Veterans Day program, “The Great War and the Texas Panhandle,” with speaker Mel Griswold. Please join us at the museum on Saturday, November 11, at 3:00pm. This is a free event.

As the weather begins to make changes, museum hours will change as well. We will no longer have Saturday hours until spring. We will be happy to try to accommodate hours for special events with notice before hand. Hours are Tuesday-Friday, 9:00am -5:00pm. Don’t hesitate to call us at 806-323-6548 for more information.
