“Eight or nine of the ladies met each morning at the old Rogers School building to cooperate in the construction of quilts. Under the guidance of a teacher, the women carried out all phases of their project. The remainder of the women worked in a separate outbuilding at the Manor making rugs, pillows, and other forms of stitchery. The ladies continued the arts and crafts program until Exceptional Forests opened a retail store at the old Prepp’s Drugstore building in July, 1975. From this facility, the women continued to create and sell items which are as beautiful and well made as any. A second retail store was also in operation at this time on Highway 101 at Sanderson Field. The “Gate House” served as a retail outlet for the wood products and ceramics which were manufactured by the men.” This is Exceptional Foresters by James H. Lindley
