Don’t Miss the Friday Quilters Show March 1

Cathy Schaber

The SaddleBrooke Friday Quilters 2020 Quilt Show will be held on Sunday, March 1st from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. Admission is free for this fabulous show at the MountainView Ballroom, 38759 S. MountainView Blvd.

The room will be filled with over 100 quilts and quilted items, including creations from some of the club’s international award-winning members. There will also be a handful of antique quilts shown to help everyone remember just how far this unique art form has advanced. As always, there will be a boutique featuring hundreds of hand-made items for sale by the club members. All proceeds benefit local charities.

Also available before and during the show are raffle tickets for a lovely quilt. It is a paper-pieced throw or wall hanging measuring 81” x 66” in southwestern colors. Ticket prices are $1 each, 6 for $5, 15 for $10, or 35 for $20 and are available from any SaddleBrooke Friday Quilters club member. The winning ticket will be drawn at the end of the show; winners need not be present to win.

In addition to the show, boutique, and quilt raffle there will be ongoing demonstrations of techniques, a booth from the Quilt for a Cause organization, Quilts of Valor, and silent auction items. The club hopes all will be able to attend this highly anticipated one-day event to see how creative these members have been over the past two years.

The club meets at 9 a.m. every Friday in Craft Room 4 at SaddleBrooke One. Quilters of all interests and skill levels are welcome. Every meeting includes an inspiring show and tell.
