Crystal Quilters hosting two-day show at Expo Center

Come Saturday, Sept. 28, or Sunday, Sept. 29, to see some awesome creations.

Crystal Quilters Guild of Enumclaw will present its 24th annual quilt show, “Sharing Our Stitches,” Friday and Saturday.

The Sept. 27-28 exhibition will be staged in the Les Schwab Hall at the Enumclaw Expo Center. Show hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.

Attendees are asked to provide a $6 donation. Also, food donations will be collected and divided between local food banks. Portions of the proceeds will also benefit food banks, with the rest going toward next year’s quilt show.

This year’s show will include: quilting demonstrations, make and takes, bed turning, a country store, vendors and a tea room. Door prizes will be awarded throughout the two-day show.

This year’s featured quilter is Nancy Agler of Enumclaw. She won the People’s Choice Award at last year’s show. She began quilting with the help of her grandmother, to make things for her dolls. Her first quilt was a tree block she made for her father and she is showing a quilt in this year’s show called “Dutch Rose” that she made for her mother some time ago. She estimates she has made between 150 and 200 quilts of all sizes through the years. She will be showing many of her quilts in the “Featured Quilter” booth at the show.

Crystal Quilters Guild was formed to promote, preserve and teach the art of quilt making. Active Guild Members participate in monthly meetings, workshops, field trips, challenge quilts, making Raffle quilts, annual picnics, Christmas parties and much more.
