Westfield Quilters’ Guild to hold quilt show Aug. 8-10

WESTFIELD – The Westfield Quilters’ Guild will hold its biennial quilt show at the Westfield Academy and Central School, at 230 E. Main St. in Westfield, on Aug. 8, 9, and 10. The theme of the show is “From Start to Finish: Twenty Years of Learning” to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Westfield Quilters’ Guild, which was founded in 1994.

The quilt show, chaired by Pam Farnham, will feature many quilts and wall hangings, all made by guild members.

There will also be a Quilter’s Challenge, where the members who choose to do the Challenge must make a quilt that features 20 different fabrics, to go along with the 20-year anniversary of the guild.

The quilt show will also feature six quilt vendors, quilt appraisals, door prizes and a guild cookbook for sale.

The show hours are Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Be sure to bring your family and friends to the show. Admission is $4, and the admission ticket will be good for the entire weekend. Parking is free.

In addition, the Westfield Quilt Show will feature a beautiful quilt to be raffled off that will benefit the guild and its programs. This stunning quilt called “Bella Bella” was paper pieced by many members of the guild. It fits a queen-size bed, or would look beautiful hung on a wall.

Tickets for the raffle quilt are $1 each, or six for $5. They may be purchased at the show in August, and can also be purchased ahead of time at the Westfield First Fridays, at the Main Street shops, on Aug. 1 and Sept. 5.

The winner of the quilt will be chosen at Quilting Around Chautauqua on Sept. 28.
