What's in Grandma's Button Jar?    

  We will meet at 6:00 pm for a soup supper. Linda Beatty will share her clothing button collection—”Miniature Marvels” and help you assess and care for your buttons. Linda has exhibited her buttons at the Brunnier Art Museum at Iowa State and Terrace Hill. Please bring your button jars and button questions.


We will be hosting the Indianola 5th Graders in May for Pioneer School. We need people to help with the museum tour, quilting, making cornhusk dolls and showing pioneer skills. At this time the date is unknown but it will be in early May. Call Linda Beatty at 961-3088 or the museum at 961-8085 if you’d like to help for two hours.
