Welcome to our web site. The Rogue Valley A's chapter of the Model A Ford Club of America
is based in Medford Oregon. We received our chapter charter from MAFCA in February 2002. Most members of our chapter own a 1928-1931 Model A Ford, but that's not a requirement
to become a member and enjoy our chapter. We currently have about 45 member/families.
We meet once a month for Club business meetings and usually schedule a tour or event after the
meeting. We welcome new people who have an interest in the 1928-1931 Model A Ford
vehicles to check us out and see what fun we're having.

A Step Into The Past: A Fabulous Feedsack Collection!
by Nell Mathern, Mountain Stars & Jacksonville Museum
Quilters Guilds, Jacksonville OR
Feedsacks bring to mind poverty of the Great Depression, but at the same time there is a romance to the idea that women could make something beautiful from something so mundane. In truth, feedsacks were used for sewing well before the Great Depression (1929 to 1939) and for several years after. The evolution of the feed sack is a story of ingenuity and clever marketing. Several Feed companies produced booklets giving ideas and patterns for the use of feedsacks.
Please visit Booth #101 at the Fall Medford Armory Antiques & Vintage Sale September 14, 15 to see a fabulous "Feedsack" collection. Meet Hazel who is wearing a feedsack dress. At the same Booth you can admire a couple of quilts representing the "Model A Ford Club of America". You’ll also have a chance to see Model A's, which were only manufactured from 1928-1931, on display in the Armory’s Parking Lot.
