“Viewers will have their say [with] the viewers’ choice award and the ‘quilt challenge.’ There will be demonstrations daily, with three trunk shows spread over the two days, and for the dedicated quilter, a variety of exhibitors in the merchant mall with their merchandise on display,” the release said.

There will also be quilts for sale, hourly door prizes and a raffle for four separate bed-sized quilts.

Admission is $8 at the door and the show will take place June 7-8, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
