Your Help Needed to Create Texarkana’s Sesquicentennial Community Quilt


My Granny loved quilting but it seems it’s a disappearing art lately, so pretty excited to hear about this project with the Texarkana Museums System to craft a Texarkana Sesquicentennial Community Quilt, and you are NEEDED!

The event will be held at the PJ Ahern Home, located at 403 Laurel Street on January 28 from 2:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

Event Page:

Join the Texarkana Museums System in celebrating Texarkana’s Sesquicentennial by adding a piece of your family history to our Community Quilt.

2023 is Texarkana’s 150th Anniversary and TMS is kicking off a year of special events by starting a community memory quilt. Participants are encouraged to bring a scrap of fabric that has personal meaning and add that piece to our quilt. No prior sewing experience necessary! We will help you stitch your memories. This is a great chance to share special stories from your family with your Texarkana neighbors.

This is a free event, but pre-registration is recommended. For more information, please contact Jamie Simmons at 903-793-4831 or email

After more than 30 years with radio and TV stations, I decided to do my own thing by blogging. It affords me the ability to stay super involved in the community, but still, have plenty of time with my 3 new granddaughters and other local projects.
