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.

The group brings in nationally known quilter-speakers and locally recognized quilt experts, while offering quilt retreats, monthly workshops and group projects.
