Three Rivers Quilters set annual show at The Meadows

Today’s quilters may no longer gather in each others’ homes for lengthy “bee” sessions.

And the quilts they produce, using traditional, modern and mixed techniques, often go beyond providing warmth to become stunning works of fabric art, suitable for framing or wall-mounting.

Three Rivers Quilters will hold its 36th annual show, “Circles,” May 9-11 at The Meadows Casino & Racetrack, 210 Racetrack Road, Washington.

Organizers expect the show to include more than 130 quilts from several states, about 20 vendors and hourly demonstrations for novice quilters, according to a release from Three Rivers Quilters.

Raffles will include the show raffle quilt, made by guild members. Granny’s Attic, a rummage sale for quilters and sewers, will be available.

More than $5,000 in prize money will be awarded.

Admission is $10.

Hours are 10 a.m.-5 p.m. May 9, 10 a.m.-7 p.m. May 10 and 10 a.m.-4 p.m. May 11.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
