Appalachian Treasures Quilt Show will be back
this year at the Appalachian Arts & Crafts Fair


To celebrate its 40th year at the festival, the quilt show will feature a ruby red color category.  The year's featured block theme will be churn dash, also known as monkey wrench.  But those two categories aren't the only ones seeking entrants.  In all, judges will consider quilts in 17 categories, making the returning event one of the region's largest.

For rules, regulations, a list of categories, and an entry form call Judith Bragg at 304-763-3619 or Margaret McNeely at 304-253-0853.  Quilt-lovers interested in volunteering for two- or three-hour shifts during the festival may also call Judith or Margaret. 


Special Quilters Event

Quilters may also be interested in participating in a free seminar, Thursday, Aug. 21, at 1 p.m., also at the Beckley-Raleigh County Convention Center.  Barbara A. Jones, a Granville West Virginia quilter, will present "Off the Wheel", a workshop which focuses on color concepts.  Pre-registration is recommended; call 304-763-3619 or 304-253-0853.
