Fullerton College: A Pictorial History

As part of the American Bicentennial celebrations, a 26-foot quiltmobile was on display in November 1975. Coordinated by interior design instructor Jerry L. Beitel, the exhibit introduced the American art of quiltmaking to many who had never had an opportunity to see handmade quilts. The following year, Mrs. Beitel helped to introduce two craft classes which stressed early American needlework, quilting and patchwork, bargelo needlepoint, sampler embroidery, and lace crochet. FC students also made a quilt to be exhibited and given away at the April 2, 1976 Night in Fullerton observance.
