2015 Quilt & Textile Show Takes on Patriotic Twist

The cost is $6 for the general public, and $5 for seniors 60 and over. Children 10 and under are free. Service men and women will also be granted free admission with a military I.D. This year’s show will have a special exhibit featuring patriotic quilts in honor of the 100th anniversary of Flag Day.

The show caters to people of all ages and features vintage and contemporary quilts. “The imagination and talent that goes into these quilts is really remarkable,” said Carla Hill, director of the Depot Museum. “They put so much time into creating something so beautiful, and we’d love for people to come check them out!”

A vendor hall features a variety of unique items for sale. Quilt technique demonstrations will be held throughout the day Friday and Saturday, and Laura Wasilowski will present “I Quilt, Therefore, I am,” on Sunday, July 19 from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at Kemp Hall, 18 N.
