Calico Quilters to sponsor 23rd show

Monday, May 31, 2010

CLAY CITY -- The Clay City Calico Quilters will sponsor their 23rd annual show at the Clay City Lion's Club Pottery Festival June 12-13.

While most of the events of the festival will be at Goshorn Park, the quilt show will be set up in the R.E.I.N. Community Center Library, 700 Main St., Clay City, just south of Dave White Ford.

Show hours at 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Saturday, June 12, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m., Sunday, June 13.

The show will open before other festival activities Friday, June 11, from 6-8:30 p.m. Admission is $2.

This year, because of construction on Main Street (also State Road 59), it might be necessary to enter the library from the rear door rather than the front. Presently, it is still possible to enter the front door, with no steps, and it is hoped this will continue, at least until after the festival.

All quilts displayed are new to the show with the exception of the 2009 Viewer's Choice quilts, which are shown again when they are available. Viewer's Choice quilts from last year include: Old Favorites; Friendship Fan -- Lisa Stevenson, Bed Quilts, Vase of Flowers -- Linda Childs, Miscellaneous -- Judith Ehrlich, and Challenge -- Norma Jean Rector.

The bed quilts will be displayed in full view as well as wall quilts, baby quilts, and various quilted items. Quilts, made as a club project for the Council on Domestic Abuse, will be shown and later presented to CODA.

Challenge quilts designed by members will make up another exhibit.

Two coordinating fabrics were chosen and members added extra fabric of their choice to create a wide variety of small quilts.

There will be a door prize drawing as well as instant winners. The door prizes, many handmade, are provided by individual members.
