The program at the Prosser Rotary Club on July 23, 2015 was presented by Marilyn Dalstra about her adventures with The Sewing Basket and Quilted Country Inn. Husband Ben Dalstra introduced Marilyn to the club and indicated they were celebrating their 48th wedding anniversary. He smiled as he paid his fine.
The story began about 20 years ago with the purchase of a house. Ben was in Pullman attending an FFA convention and when he returned, Marilyn had purchased the house. It is located on Wine Country Road and is on the bank of the Yakima River. The home has been remodeled to become a bed and breakfast as well as lodging for quilters who stay to work on projects or attend quilting classes.
