Quilts at the Cannon House: a Delhi Historical Society Presentation on Saturday, 9/23

Delaware County Town and Country Quilters will show some of their quilts at the Cannon House on Saturday, September 23. They recently came into possession of a quilt started by Clara Stewart, a founding member of the Delhi Historical Society. The quilt was never finished, but the members are currently working to rectify that. When they are finished, the quilt will be donated to the Delhi Historical Society to be displayed at the Cannon House.
