The community is invited to view about 153 quilts on display this Saturday, July 21 at "A Walk in the Woods" Quilt Show at the Seeley Lake Elementary School. Quilt Show hours are 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This is a family affair and no admission is charged. Viewers can vote for their favorite quilt in each category. Voting ends at 4:00 p.m. and ribbons will be awarded shortly afterward.
Throughout the day, quilters will be demonstrating various techniques. Arlene Niethe will be hand quilting all day and invites you to give it a try. Other demonstrations start at 10:00 a.m. Topics scheduled are "Unusual Rulers" by Jill Larson, "The Ironing Cloth" by Andrea LaMothe, "Continuous Bias Binding" by Arlene Niethe, "Start with a Square" by Julie Hacker, "Making Chenille" by Jeri Kelly, and "A Quilting Mystery" by Donna Sturm.
At 4:00 p.m. the winner of the beautiful queen sized quilt will be announced. At the same time the winning ticket for the Fat Quarter Basket will be drawn. Twenty percent of the quilt raffle proceeds are given to the community.
Also, you are invited to visit the "Community Quilts" project display. These "comfort" quilts are given to community members who are in need. Quilts have already been given to the terminally ill, the grieving, and some seriously sick children.
Another great opportunity for viewers is purchasing a beautifully crafted item at our Boutique. Members of the Quiltmakers of the Tamaracks will be on hand to answer questions.
