John and Julia Snethen had a busy week. John has been feeling bad and thought he was having a heart attack so he call 911 and woke Julia and Ron and waited forever for the ambulance to arrive. After they finally got here they wouldn’t talk to Julia and finally, after 20 minutes, took him to the emergency room at Bolivar. They admitted him for testing and found out he has acid reflux syndrome. He is still in a lot of pain but plans to return to work on Tuesday. Julia kept her appointments and then went to Clinton and did some shopping before returning home.
Rockville Hand Quilters are enjoying using their new old quilt frame that James Rosbrugh brought.
History of the Quilting Frame: by James W. Rosbrugh
This quilting frame dates from the 1800’s, the exact date is unknown. What we do know is it came to Missouri from Colorado in 1914, when Elma Lucile (Nolte) Rosbrugh was six months old. It belonged to either Elma Lucile’s grandmother, Emma (Strong) Nolte (James’ great-grandmother), or her mother Edna (Yeamans) Nolte (James’ grandmother), as the two families moved together to settle on a farm southeast of Rockville. It is believed the former, as Elma Lucile received it when her grandmother, Emma passed away. When Elma Lucile passed away, it remained in the family until her son, James, donated it to the (insert name of quilting gild) in January 2023. When the quilting gild ceases to have a use for it, he has requested that it be given to the Appleton City Historical Museum.
We quilt from 1-5 on Thursday. You are always welcome to stop by to visit or see our quilts, coffee around 2:30.
