CHINA GROVE ó The Historical Society of South Rowan is hosting the handiwork of the Salisbury-Rowan Quilters Guild for its August open house.
The event takes place 2-4 p.m. Sunday at the China Grove Roller Mill, 308 N. Main St., China Grove.
The open house is free and the public is invited.
Guild members will be displaying will be displaying award winning quilts, antique quilts, wall hangings and wearable art.
About four dozen items are slated to be shown, all of which are past award winners. Guild members will be on hand to answer questions. Anyone who would like to bring in a quilt to show to the guild members may do so.
“We were looking for different exhibits,” says Carole Brooke, a director of the historical society. She and quilter Cathy Reynolds go to church together, and Reynolds offered to put together a show for the historical society.
“They wanted an opportunity to show their work in advance of their October show,” Brooke says. “It’s beautiful, beautiful work.”
The monthly open houses, Brooke says, show off the newly renovated roller mill. The facility is available for community events, receptions and meetings.
The Salisbury-Rowan Quilters Guild meets the third Thursday of each month at 1 p.m. at Rufty-Holmes Senior Center, 1120 S. Boundary St.
New members are welcome. Guild members are preparing for a quilt show Oct. 1.
