Admission is $6 per day. Parking is free, and lunch is available for purchase.

The show offers quilters the opportunity to display their work to the public and gives the community a chance to see the new and exciting directions quilt-making is taking, as new techniques, fabric and materials become available in the marketplace and are used in quilts.

The show will feature hundreds of quilts and other quilted items. Attendees will cast their votes in choosing the Viewer’s Choice. Other activities include vendors, “Quiltique” with handcrafted gifts and raffle baskets, A highlight is the annual Opportunity Quilt, which is a fundraiser for the guild. This year’s Opportunity Quilt was appliquéd and pieced by guild members and quilted by Material Handlers/Gail and Bob Russick.

Proceeds from this event will support the activities of the guild, which include promoting quilting and the use of textiles, and community service projects making quilts for Project Linus, Ronald McDonald charities and the SPCA.
