In Stitches, the Cariboo Piecemakers Quilt Club’s quilt show and sale will feature more than 300 quilts in all sorts of shapes and styles throughout the weekend, made by quilters aged six to 86.
“People should expect an explosion of colour and talent,” said Rilla Warwick, a Piecemaker’s spokesperson.
“We’ve got clothing, we’ve got bags, we’ve got quilts.”
Registration for the event is open to quilters across the area, and Warwick said that many are still coming in.
“We have so many talented quilt-makers in this town.”
Vendors from across the province, from Grand Forks to Penticton and Prince George to Pritchard, will also be at the event, showcasing a variety of fabrics and supplies for eager quilting enthusiasts.
Not only will quilts, large and small, be showcased at the event, a number of them will also be on sale.
“We’ve got many different categories,” said Warwick. “There are also going to be several Christmas trees from a workshop we did that are absolutely stunning.”
This year’s raffle quilt will see proceeds go towards the Cariboo Chilcotin Partners for Literacy.
A vocalist will provide music through the weekend, and also on display will be antique sewing machines.
A concession will also be on hand, providing food, tea and coffee, and door prizes will be handed out throughout the weekend.
