Handmade Commemorative Artifact
On Display at Lenox Community Center 65 Walker Street
Designed by Arline Callan, and created by Arline, Karen Pratt and Susan Morris
Arline Callan, an active Lenox resident, attended Lenox High School. When she decided to craft a quilt as a commemorative of the Lenox 250th Anniversary, she chose the Lenox High School colors.
The Lenox 250th logo also influenced her color choice. The logo was designed by Lenox High School alumna Katie Mitts and is used as the center design.
Arline decided on a nine-patch square traditional pattern. She had some help planning the design. Her husband, Jim, did the calculations to set up an accurate pattern.
Arline did the cutting, assembling, and sewing together of all the pieces and attached a sleeve to the back for hanging.
Karen Pratt, a professional quilter in Pittsfield, completed the project using her quilting expertise.
This commemorative quilt will be raffled off at the November 5th Lenox 250th Social at the Lenox Community Center. Raffle tickets for the quilt are $5 each or 6 for $25, and are available at the Lenox Visitors Center, 4 Housatonic Street, the Lenox Community Center, 65 Walker Street, the Lenox Library, 4 Main Street, and The Bookstore, 11 Housatonic Street.
