Twisted Stitchers announce quilt show and raffle
Twisted Stitchers Quilt Guild is a local quilt guild that has, for the last two years, given quilts to United States Military Veterans at the Veteran’s Day program held at the J C Penney High School in Hamilton, Missouri. The guild members donate their time, talent and materials to make these quilts because they feel that it is an important opportunity to show their appreciation and gratitude to those who have served.
In an effort to help with the cost of the materials needed to make these quilts, the guild will be selling raffle tickets for the quilt shown in the picture accompanying this article. The quilt will be displayed at the J C Penney Days quilt show held at the Federated Church in Hamilton on Saturday, September 28, 2019. Tickets will be available at the quilt show or you may call 660-755-4911 to purchase tickets. Tickets are $1 each or 6 for $5. The quilt show hours are from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. The drawing for the quilt will be approximately 3 p.m.
Twisted Stitchers Quilt Guild has held a quilt show during the J C Penney Days celebration in Hamilton for the last several years. This year we anticipate having a large variety of quilts in the show, plus a ‘garage sale’ of sewing and craft related items inside the fellowship hall of the church to further our efforts to fund our veteran’s quilt program.
The quilt show categories are applique, hand quilted, machine quilted, vintage, baby and miscellaneous small items. Ribbon awards will be given for Best of Show, and 1st, 2nd and 3rd place quilts in each category. Anyone that is interested in entering a quilt in the show should bring the quilt to registration on Friday, September 27 between 4:00 pm and 7:00 pm at the Federated Church located at 210 S Davis Street, Hamilton, Missouri.
For more information you may call 660-755-4911.
