The Manson Apple Blossom Quilt Show is a compilation of beautiful works of art from beginners to advanced quilters in the local area. In 2019 over 60 quilts were on display and we expect to reach that many this year. Some quilts are for sale, so you may just find a beautiful piece for your home. Since this event is held inside we are asking you to wear a mask and practice social distancing. Mask and hand sanitizers will be available.
The Undercover Quilters Guild has been in existence for over 25 years and continues to do philanthropic work in the community. The Guild provides “Comfort Quilts” to residents experiencing traumatic events such as home fires, hundreds have been donated. It is also a fun group to join if you are interested in quilting. There will be information on the Guild at the Quilt show.
The show starts 7:00 am and runs until 2:00 pm in the gym at North Shore Bible Church, 123 Wapato Pt. Parkway – Manson on Saturday, May 8th. All proceeds benefit the Apple Blossom Festival (except the Raffle Quilt).
