Born and raised a wheat farmer’s daughter in the Nebraska Panhandle, and coming from a cattle ranch in a remote area of south-central South Dakota, Yvonne Hollenbeck brings a collection of five generations of quilts made by members of her family, spanning 140 years. Hear the oohs and aahs as Hollenbeck unfolds the beautiful creations made on the farms and ranches of the Northern Plains. Many of the quilts that will be shown in her presentation were made by hand in sod houses, and at a time when electricity and other modern conveniences were not available. This collection includes her collection of family quilts including her own prize winning creations.

In addition to this popular presentation, Hollenbeck will recite some of her original poetry about quilts and quilters.

This entertaining and educational program has been receiving outstanding critiques by folks of all ages, men and women both, so don’t worry about this being just for the ladies.
