CALLING FOR FAMILY QUILTS
‘Family Quilts ~ Community Heritage’
Treasured memories of a loved one, a special event in a person’s life, or a community event are preserved in many quilts. We will celebrate these quilts that are the fabric of our community in a small outdoor quilt show on Opening Day.
Are you fortunate enough to have a quilt that has
been in your family that you would like to share?
