Thank you for attending our Garden of Quilts show in 2022!

We had a fabulous turnout, with wonderful quilts to view, vendors to visit, boutique and book sale to shop, Quilts of Valor display and more. We had a fun time presenting our show to you, and hope you will join us again in 2024.

We were the cover story for the May 2022 Bold Life magazine! Click here to download the article.
