Quilts sought for annual show Print E-mail

Quilt guild preparing for 21st annual Barbecue Days show

     Members of the Central Idaho Quilters’ Guild are making plans for their 21st annual Quilt Show to be held in conjunction with Kamiah’s 79th annual Barbecue Days festivities. The show will again be held at St. Catherine’s Church located on Idaho and 7th streets in Kamiah. Show hours are Saturday, Sept. 5 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and Sunday, Sept. 6 from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.

     Show organizers welcome entries from anyone who would like to share their quilts and/or quilted items. You are not limited on the number of entries you may enter, though if there is an unusual amount of entries, you will be asked to cut back and choose the ones you would like to enter. If you have an antique quilt you would like to share, it must be at least 60 years old.

     Anyone wishing to obtain an entry form ahead of time may do so at the Kamiah Community Library, Kamiah Community Credit Union, or by calling one of the numbers listed below.

     Entries will be accepted Wednesday, Sept. 2 from 5-7 p.m. and Thursday, Sept. 3 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. at St. Catherine’s Church (at the side basement entrance across from the swimming pool). NO ENTRIES will be accepted after 1 p.m. on Thursday to allow time for display setup. Utmost care will be taken with all entries.

    All items entered must be picked up at the close of the show on Sunday, Sept. 6 beginning at 4 p.m. unless prior arrangements have been made at the time of entry. For your protection ALL ITEMS MUST have a label attached on the backside of the item.

     The Central Idaho Quilters have again made a beautiful quilt that will be given away to some “lucky” person at the close of the show on Sunday. This year’s queen size quilt is called “Snow Buddies.” Several other prizes will also be given away during the course of the show. Tickets are available from guild members at any time, Umpqua Bank in Kooskia, Kamiah Community Credit Union, during the parade, and at the quilt show.

     No admission will be charged, however, donations will be accepted and appreciated. Your donation helps the guild to continue their numerous community services. Your donation will also give you a chance to win one of the great door prizes, many that were handcrafted by members of the guild.

     The show location is handicap accessible and air-conditioned for your convenience and comfort.
