Bring a friend and come out to view the quilts on display during the event. Many varieties of quilts will encompass the show, ranging from old, new, hand-stitched, machine-stitched, large and small. No two quilts will be the same. The only common thread that each quilt has is that they are each pieced with love and artistry. Quilters from Southeast Kansas and Southwest Missouri will be featured during the show, all with a passion for rural living, family ties and a love of quilting.

In addition to viewing the display, join us for special guest speaker, Nancy Swanwick on January 7th at 2 p.m. at the Village for a “Quilt Trunk Show.”  Nancy will give information about how quilting can be the ties that bind us together over the generations. Her presentation is highly recommended by others as a must see and she has many treasures in her trunk to share.

For more information about the show or entering a quilt for the exhibit, contact executive director Ginger Nance at (620) 223-5550 or email [email protected]. All quilts are welcome, the more variety, the better the show. Fill your car with friends and come out to enjoy the show!
