In a world that is changing so fast, it was nice to go back in history; even if it was for only a moment. The Wellsville River Museum is as beautiful as I remember when I was a kid and it was a perfect setting for a quilt show. Most of those quilts were made in a time when that was your way to stay warm and they have persevered throughout time, showing up in Wellsville. Great job to those all involved!!!
