  • South Bend

    Freemasonry was formally established in South Bend in 1842, when on May 24 of that year, St Joseph Lodge No.45 was chartered. There were 13 members. South Bend then had a population of about 500. Since that time the city has grown to a population of 100,000, and Masonry has grown in equal proportion.

A Collaborative Masonic Quilt

 
Some years ago the Scottish Rite Masonic Museum & Library in Lexington, Massachusetts, purchased a white quilt, hand-embroidered in red.  Each of the 72 blocks on this quilt features a symbol related to Craft, Scottish Rite and York Rite Freemasonry. White quilts decorated with red embroidery were part of a fashion for household textiles decorated with simple red stitching, sometimes called “redwork,” that enjoyed popularity from the late 1800s through the 1920s. Many needleworkers participating in the trend used commercially-produced patterns, stencils and transfers for their redwork projects.
