The Silverton Threads Quilting Guild is again hosting the famous Colorfest Quilt Show & Sale, Sept. 7-8 at the Silverton School gym.
The show features amazing, intricate weaving by true artists in the tradition, according Silverton quilter Carolyn Wolf.
“There are many autumn-themed quilts,” Wolf said, but the various artists tend to cover just about any theme imaginable.
“We do have some that the gals brought in already that are going to be entered into the art design quilt category,” Wolf said. “They’re gorgeous.”
The event will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 8, and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.
Hundreds of colorful quilts from around the country will be featured, ranging from miniatures, antiques, wall hangings, decorations, new techniques, stain-glass, and much more. Also on hand will be unique vendors with fabrics, patterns and supplies.
Items will be judged in three categories: Hand Quilted, Machine Quilted, and Quilted Items. Judging will be closed Sunday at 2 p.m. and winners will be announced at 2:30.
Hourly door prizes and a charity quilt drawing will be offered. Admission is $3. Proceeds go to local nonprofit organizations.
