"Feed Sacks…Yesterday's Cherished Fabrics" Presented by Darlene Kronschnabel The fabulous calico-printed feed sacks from the 30s and 40s came with buying essentials for the home or farm, something soft and pretty in times of hardship and rationing. The nostalgia for feed sacks brings back happy memories of grandmother’
story to tell today. Darlene Kronschnabel, an award-winning writer, has helped cooks please palates for over twenty years in magazines,
