Under the theme “Sharing,” quilters from the guild will showcase their quilts, and guests can talk to the members about their work. Some quilts will be displayed, while others will be available for purchase.

There will be daily door prizes and draws on a double quilt and a sewing basket.

The guild, which was established in 2011, began holding quilt shows in 2014. The group meets monthly in Springdale for learning and fellowship. The show is meant to show the people of the community and region some of the projects completed by its members. Hundreds of pieces have been showcased each year to hundreds of guests.
