Holiday Quilts In Museum Display Last spring a group of 18 women, all members of the Jamesville Community Museum, started work on an eight-point Holiday Star quilt with alternating squares in the shape of a poinsettia. Now the quilt and a matching pillow are, complete and will be awarded as-part of the museum's holiday program being held from 1 to 4 p.m. December 6 and 7. Tickets are now on sale and will also be sold at the museum.. Linda White and her husband, Michael, both Jamesville resi­ dents, designed the quilt and en­ couraged museum members to help with the stitching. Many of the women who par­ ticipated in the creation had no experience in quiltmaking but were taught by Mrs. White. In addition to Mrs. White, the other seamstresses were Bar­ bara Dahn, Regina Clinton, Cindy Torelli, Lucy Hawkins, Esther Mulcahy, Sarah Myers, Eunice Tompkins, Katie Bolsei, Jean Brown, Libby Palin, Eveline Conklin, Jerry Paul, Ar- line Greenhalgh, Dorothy Burtt, Sandy Baker, Doris Paul and Dolores Schuliar. The Jamesville Community Museum has planned a hpliday exhibit with a bedroom theme. Many quilts will be on display in both the museum and the Jamesville Community Center, which will house history quilts dating back to 1832. The com­ munity center will also display antique ornaments. There will ,be films at the community center and a quilt­ ing demonstration at the museum.

Summers On Floating Bookstore Featured Artist Sue Payne, a member of Peb­ ble Hill Presbyterian Church, spent six weeks of her summer on the west coast-of Africa aboard largest floating bookstore in the world. \Operation Mobilization\ is a 4,000 volume book display housed on the ship the Doulos (Greek for servant) and Miss Payne was one of the 300 crew members from around the world who work to keep the operation afloat. The ship is funded through non-denominational mission or­ ganizations and, in addition to its bookstore, offers a variety of Christian programs. According to Miss Payne, a 1977 graduate of Fayetteville- Manlius High School and a graduate student at Gordon- Conwell Theological Seminary in Massachusetts, the book exhibit is open to the public and offers texts ranging from chil­ dren's books to history and Afri­ can culture, most in a variety of languages. While aboard the Doulos, Miss Payne made stops in Monrovia, Liberia; Abidjan, Ivory Coast and Tema, Ghana. \There would be opening ceremonies at each port and about 1,000 people a day would go through the exhibit,\ Miss Payne says. Often they would wait for hours to see the exhibit. While on board, her job was to work in the pantry, helping to prepare and clean up meals for the large crew. She says that Africa was a land of contrasts, where dugout canoes would be paddled in the same bay where large ships were moored. In Abidjan, a metropoli­ tan city complete with skyscrap­ ers, there were business suits also natives in traditional dress. Bookstores are not found on every corner in Africa and books are considered valuable posses­ sions. Operation Mobilization offered*, books at just above cost and although they would be bar­ gains in the U.S., they were ex­ pensive for the African buyers. Miss Payne recalls that Ghana, where the economy col­ lapsed in 1982, is a poor country and no one expected the book; exhibit to do welf iirthe port of Tema. However, sales there were many times what the group anticipated. Most people who visited the floating bookstore, left with books under their arms. Miss Payne says the trip gave her insight into missionary work as well as giving her expo­ sure to different cultures. As a crew member, she had the opportunity to meet people from around the world who worked on the ship and was ex­ cited to see how open the African people were to Christianity. Her plan, once her master's degree in Christian education is completed, is to work in chil­ dren's ministries.
