  • Every quilt tells a story. Whether it is a baby quilt lovingly made by an expectant mother in the 1930s, a quilt pieced and embroidered by friends in the 1990s, a quilt sewn by a grandmother for her granddaughter’s wedding in the 1960s or quilts purchased at antique quilt shows throughout the country to furnish the houses of a family ranch compound, all are family treasures that tell a story. These family treasures will be on display at the Bonham Public Library during the Quilt Hop July 25 and 26. photo of axe head quilt by Letty Wageman
  • It takes about $32,000 a year to maintain Willow Wild the way we wanted it to look, the way we promised you we would. The biggest cost is mowing, but there are water bills, restoration costs from vandalism, equipment maintenance, fence repair, storm clean up - the list goes on and on. We need donations. No amount is too small, and we provide tax receipts. Our goal is to raise $10,000 by Labor Day.
