Quilts sought for annual show coming up Feb. 22-24
Trinity Oaks Health and Rehab in Salisbury will host its 31st Annual Quilt Show Feb. 22-24. Area quilters have shown nearly 300 quilted items in last 30 years. Not only are local items featured, but often quilts with histories as far away as Indiana and Hawaii are shared.
The Salisbury-Rowan Quilters Guild and the Starry Nights Quilters Group (both of Salisbury) actively support the exhibit by displaying work and volunteering time for set up. Local businesses The Quilted Bicycle and Center of Creation also support the show.
Quilts are currently being collected and inventoried for this year’s exhibit. Each quilt is inventoried and a history taken. Attempts are made to identify unknown patterns. Each quilt is recorded in a printed directory which viewers refer to during the show.
Quilts are carefully stored until the show. To ensure the security and proper care of the quilts during the show, docents are present and viewers are required to wear gloves as they walk through the show. Quilts are locked up at night
Individuals as well as groups are invited to show quilted items. If you are interested in exhibiting a quilt or setting up a demonstration during the show, contact Brenda Zimmerman at 704-603-2770.
