Quilts sought for annual Wayne County show

RICHMOND — Why leave your grandmother’s quilt sitting in a trunk in the attic when you can bring it to be displayed at Richmond’s premiere quilt show?

The event runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Friday-Saturday, May 24-25, at the Wayne County Fairgrounds, 861 N. Salisbury Road, Richmond. Sponsored by the Wayne County Extension Homemakers, the biennial quilt show is expected to have well over 100 quilts on display.

In addition to the quilts, there will be vendors, a special exhibit by Junior Quilters, luncheon for purchase, and a “garage sale” table. A silent auction of themed baskets benefits a scholarship fund.

Visit the Facebook page to sign up for classes on “Applique using Hotfix” and “Using the Quilter’s Cutting Guide” to quickly and efficiently cut your quilt pieces.

Applications are now being accepted for your quilt to be exhibited. There is no charge for displaying a quilt and you can enter as many quilts as you want.

Deadline for applications is May 10.

For information, contact Jessica at craftevent@hotmail.com or call Kathy at (765) 855-5185. Visit the Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WayneCoINQuiltShow.
