Commentaires : Donated by Dora Cochrane. Another name is marked on the bottom of the 4 legs: V.D. Begin. From Roxanna Johnson, cousin of the donor: My grandmothers name was Dora Amelia Hazel née Blenkhorn. She was born April 15 th 1878 and died June 10th 1956. She was a member of the Newport Baptist Church in Scotch Village. The quilting frame was used by the members of the Womens Institute. I dont know if the frame belonged to her or the Institute but it was stored in her attic and my Mom stored it in her attic when Grammie died. When my parents left the Village to live in town she gave it to my cousin. I remember quilting at it in Grammies  dining room in the early 1950s.
Fonctions : May date from the 1800s. Roxanna Johanson, cousin of the donor, remembers using it at her grandmothers in the 1940s. It either belonged to her grandmother, Dora Amelia Hazel (nee Blenkhorn, b. April 15 1878, d. June 10 1956) or the Newport Baptist Church in Scotch Village and was used by the Womens Institute, of which her grandmother was a member, for missionary quilts they made.
