Xenia Cord

Xenia Cord has been making history and sharing history her entire life – from the
age of 14 months when she emigrated to the United States with her mother on the last ship to leave Norway before the Nazis invaded … to her years of service as a popular folklore instructor at Indiana University Kokomo, a pre-eminent collector, scholar and author in the world of quilting, and a recognized researcher in the history of free African-Americans in Indiana prior to the Civil War. Xenia is one of three in this year's class to be inducted into a Hall of Fame - this time the Quilter's Hall of Fame!
Please join us in congratulating Xenia for being inducted into our very own Hall of Legends!
