Hello Hello!!!!!!! :)
posted (and emailed) to the IRC #Stitch (starlink chat group) webpage.
Arachne kindly gave me her permission to post her message (below) to
RCTN and RCTQ.
Title: IMQ FOUND!!!!!!
Date: 16/04/98 12:30:28
I'm so e***d!!!! I opened my Ventura Edition of the LA Times today and
there was OUR quilt!!! It's on exhibit at the Ronald Reagan Library in
Simi Valleey and will be there through Oct 4!! It's the centerpiece of
their show on history and quilting! I'm supposed to get to see it
Could someone let the folks on RCTN know and I'll be posting further
details (like what souveniers are available) as I learn it.. and I'm
taking a camera so soon we'll have updated pix on our web page.
Oh my!! And we were afraid they were ignoring it..

For those rather new to RCTN and RCTQ, the "IMQ" was created In Memory
of the Victims of Oklahoma City Bombing. Please visit Kathy Dyer's
webpage (http://www.FoundCollection.com/~kdyer/imq.html) or my webpage
(http://www.FoundCollection.com/~hmardis/imq.html -- yes, it needs updating)
if you would like more information and history about this memorable and
truly inspiring quilt.
Alas, this quilt has a sad side. It never would have been created had
not the tragic bombing occurred at the Murrah Federal Building in
Oklahoma City on 19 April 1995 :(
Let us not forget the victims.
