Stitchers, and those with an appreciation for handmade beauty, will want to attend the Appleseed Quilt Show at the Memorial Coliseum Expo Center this June 21-23.
Hours on Thursday & Friday: 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Hours on Saturday: 9:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m.
This Appleseed Quilt Show promises to be a feast for the eyes as more than 300 quilts will be exhibited. Workshops will be held by skilled quilters like nationally-known quilter Jacquie Gering. Gering is a contributing designer and author for Stitch and Quilter’s World magazines.
Those shopping for early Christmas presents could find something at the Appleseed Quilters Guild Boutique. Quilts, wall-hangings, holiday items, totes, purses and other sewing items made by quild members will be for sale.
I think it’s neat that the guild is encouraging the creativity of teens by offering a special exhibit of quilts made by quilters aged 17 and younger. Can teens sit still long enough to make a quilt? We’ll find out!
A modest $5.00 registration fee includes admittance all three days. Children 12 and under are free.
