"Feed Sacks...Yesterday's Cherished Fabrics" Presented by Darlene Kronschnabel The fabulous calico-printed feed sacks from the 30s and 40s came with buying essentials for the home or farm, something soft and pretty in times of hardship and rationing. The nostalgia for feed sacks brings back happy memories of grandmother's aprons, tea towels and little girls' dresses. Kronschnabel shares interesting feed sack stories, such as how their sales predicted the outcome of the Dewey/Truman race for the White House. Included is a display of assorted feed sacks, garments, and quilts, and swatch books. The humble but colorful feed sack still has a story to tell today. Darlene Kronschnabel, an award-winning writer, has helped cooks please palates for over twenty years in magazines,cookbooks and for such respected publishers as Better Homes and Gardens, Ideals, and Reiman Publications. She serves as a writing instructor at the School of the Arts at Rhinelander and for the Continuing Education Course sponsored by the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
