Museum to present 'Scrappy Lady'

The Museum of the San Ramon Valley will present "Quilts," the work of artist Ethel Selberg, often called the "Scrappy Lady," who developed a love of quilting as a child in the Midwest. Upon her retirement in 1978, after raising five children and working as a daycare facilitator, she threw her energies into her quilt-making career. Since then she has completed more than 100 quilts.

The exhibit opens Aug. 14 and runs through Sept. 23. Quilting demonstrations will take place from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., Saturdays, Aug. 25 and Sept. 8, at the museum, 205 Railroad Ave. in Danville. Call 837-3750.
