The Festival of Quilts will be held on Saturday, April 29 during the 2017 Shepherd Maple Syrup Festival. Community members can submit their quilts, wall hangings, runners, and/or mini-quilts as entries in the festival. Submitted pieces can be recently completed works by local quilters or cherished family heirlooms. The stories that accompany each quilt are always interesting to read. This will not be a judged show but a sharing of handmade items for the pleasure of all viewers. Do you have an unfinished quilting project?
