Quilters guild members show their best work

By From page A3 | May 27, 2012

The Flying Needles Quilters Guild will host its annual quilt show at the Woodland Fairgrounds, 1250 E. Gum Ave., Saturday and Sunday, June 2-3. Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Admission is $6 per day. Parking is free and lunch is available on site.

The show offers quilters the opportunity to display their work and gives the community a peek at new quilting techniques, fabric and materials.

The show will feature hundreds of antique, traditional and contemporary quilts, as well as accessories made by quilters. Show attendees cast their votes in choosing the Viewer’s Choice.

Other activities include vendors selling handcrafted gifts, raffle baskets, a silent auction and demonstrations.

The opportunity quilts, made by Cindy Brock and Hilder Murphy, will be sold as a fundraiser.

Proceeds from the event will support the activities of the Flying Needles Quilters Guild. The guild contributes to the knowledge of quilting techniques, patterns, history and quilt making by providing educational meetings, fun and fellowship. Community service activities include making quilts for community organizations such as Project Linus, Ronald McDonald charities and the SPCA.
