Percival Needlecrafters (Percival, Iowa)



  • Existence: 1976-1992

The genesis of the Percival Needlecrafters was a quilt fair and bazaar held in the Percival, Iowa gym on June 14, 1975. Participating clubs in the fair included the Best Ever Club and the Friendly Neighbors Club. The needlework club was an informal club with no officers or dues. Anyone in the community could participate.

The first meeting of the needlecrafters was held on February 11, 1976. During its first four years, the club made four quilts of traditional patterns which were donated to the Percival Fire Department and subsequently auctioned off to raise money for special needs of the fire department. Another major project of the club was to make quilted lap robes which were donated to residents at area rest homes.

The Percival Needlecrafters disbanded in late 1992.
