Have you noticed the new button on The Genealogy Center homepage? It’s in the upper left corner and says, “Family Tree Pillow and Art. Click here.” Go ahead and click! The link will take you to our new partner, Keepsake Threads, who produces heirloom quality textile art and other items. They can take old family photographs or family trees and place the design on throw pillows for your living room, or on a wall hanging. They can also take cloth keepsakes to make quilts, stuffed animals, pillows, and, soon, quilt squares. Do you have all of the neckties worn by your dad from the 1970s? Or your children’s souvenir tee-shirts? They can provide ways to use those items to create a priceless family heirloom. And a portion of the genealogy pillow and wall hanging sales goes to the Allen County Public Library Foundation, which helps to support The Genealogy Center.
So take a peek at their website, and visit them at their booth at the Federation of Genealogy Societies' Conference in August!
