My quilt guild, Cabin Fever Quilters, is having their biannual show at the Jefferson County Fairgrounds on Friday and Saturday, September 26th and 27th . The show opens at 10 a.m., and closes at 5 p.m. daily. The fairgrounds are located at 4907 Landes Street in Port Townsend. Parking is free.
We’ll have lots of quilts and quilted clothing items made by our nearly 100 members to see. In addition, we’ll have vendors of various quilt-related and sewing items, a wonderful display of antique sewing machines, and demonstrations of various quilting techniques. And last but not least, you’ll be able to see our beautiful Opportunity Quilt, and have a chance to purchase a ticket for the drawing on Saturday afternoon. Tickets are just $1.00 apiece, and proceeds go toward supporting our efforts to promote the art and craft of quilting, while making and donating over 100 comfort quilts a year to Hospice of Jefferson County and to Child Protective Services. Breakfast and lunch are available for purchase on site. We’re asking for a $5 donation for entry, children are free.
I will be demonstrating free motion quilting at the show each day from 10 am to 2 pm. Come by for a visit; the demo is very informal so there will be lots of opportunity for asking questions or just having a chat. Hope to see you there!
