Festival of Quilts

The Festival of Quilts will take place from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday, April 25 inside the Shepherd Middle School Gym.

Quilters with a connection to the Village of Shepherd will travel from near and far to share their quilts with festival visitors. The categories for this year’s quilt show include full-size quilts, smaller quilts, wall hangings, table runners, historical
quilts, vintage quilts, and rescue quilts.

This year, the quilt show will also include the collection of local quilter Natalie Hackney. Natalie has exhibited beautiful individual quilts in the past and it will be a pleasure to see a wall of her favorite creations. Another section of the show is the judged “Challenge.” At last year’s show, interested sewers were challenged to create a wall hanging representing the theme “20-20 Vision.” It will be exciting to see what creative items they will contribute.
