The Flying Needles Quilters Guild will host its annual quilt show at the Yolo County Fairgrounds, 1250 E. Gum Ave. in Woodland, on Saturday and Sunday, May 17-18.

The annual 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 be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is $6 per day.

The show will feature hundreds of quilts, including traditional, contemporary and handmade quilted accessories. Show attendees 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.

Parking for the show is free and lunch is available on-site.

Proceeds from this event will support the activities of the guild, which include promoting quilting and the use of textiles within the guild itself and the community at large. Community service activities include making quilts for various community organizations such as Project Linus, Ronald McDonald Charities and the SPCA.
