IFHE Development Fund - IFHE International Quilt 2008
For IFHE centennial celebrations the International Federation for Home Economics Development Fund, arranged the Centennial Quilt project for contributing to funds for Centennial grants. Two quilts were assembled, as 110 squares were received from all over the world. The larger quilt, 8x10 squares/feet, was displayed high on the wall in the Lucerne Convention Center where it drew much attention. Over $2000 worth of tickets were sold, all funds going to the IFHE-US Development Fund to support future projects. A second quilt, 5x7 squares/feet, was assembled and presented to the International IFHE Office in Bonn, Germany, to celebrate the 100th anniversary of IFHE in Switzerland.
