Bemidji Jaycees: T-shirt quilt represents years of service

Email

BEMIDJI – A quilt featuring the T-shirts from each of Bemidji’s annual Water Carnival festivals will be unveiled this week.

Longtime Jaycees member Deb Hemstad made the 120-inch-by-90-inch quilt, cutting each T-shirt to showcase the logo from that year.

She had long planned to create the quilt, and began working on it this summer in honor of the 75th anniversary of the Bemidji Jaycees.
