Quilts Tell Stories by the Sea
Who doesn’t have golden memories of a special day at the beach?
“Memories at the Beach” is the theme of this year’s quilt show, sponsored by the Tillamook County Quilt Guild. It will be held October 12-13 in its original location at the City Hall Community Building, Bay City, Oregon. This quilt show has been a local favorite since 1976 when the guild presented its first quilt show as part of the Bicentennial Celebrations.
The guild was founded by master quilter Audrey Peters of Bay City. New retirees from the Portland area and local ladies came together to share their love of quilts and quiltmaking. For their first group project, experienced quilters and beginners made a Bicentennial Quilt depicting scenes of Tillamook County. The quilt was exhibited at the Pioneer Museum for years and will again share it’s story at the quilt show.
“Ah, the stories they will tell”. Quilters, come one – come all to share the stories in your quilts! For this show, theme quilts, family quilts, antique quilts and first quilts will join the quilts made in local quilt shop classes, quilts from local guilds and independent quilters.
Visitors who travel through the county will be as delighted to read the stories and view these creations as our local fans. As always, there will be a hands-on opportunity to help make an American Heroes Quilt.
There will be door prizes every half hour, raffle quilts and some very special quilts for sale.
