Kitsap Quilters Show set for this weekend

Kitsap Quilters will be putting on its 34th annual Quilt Show this weekend at the Kitsap County Fairgrounds.

Over 200 quilts will be on display to embrace traditional and modern methods, as well as demonstrations and a silent auction. Vendors will be coming from all over Washington and Oregon. This year’s featured artist is Terry Loy. The two-day event is Friday and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Kitsap Quilters is comprised of over 150 members, offering opportunities to learn, sew with others who are passionate about quilting, make friendships with creative people and contribute back to the community.

The group brings in nationally known quilter-speakers and locally recognized quilt experts, while offering quilt retreats, monthly workshops and group projects. Members participate in many local charity efforts including Kitsap Snuggles and Kitsap Cuddles which offer quilts to NICU babies and children in crisis.
