Great first quilt show

Dear Editor,

Wow! We did it! We’re the Highland Stitchers and we are so proud of our first annual quilt show. For all who came thank you so much for joining us. It was so nice to see old friends, meet new friends and to have so many come from far and wide. It was our first, we did the best we could, and hope everyone saw at least one thing they enjoyed.

We would like to thank the Borderland Historical Society for the use of the quilt racks and also to thank them for inviting us to display quilts at the Centennial Park during Heritage Days. We would like to thank the businesses who let us hang quilts in their windows. It’s nice to know we can pull together and help each other out.

Thank you to all who brought heirloom quilts to display at our quilt show, Ruth Leslie has been known for her beautiful handy work for years and it was a joy to see quilts she made for her family.

Our showcase quilt was wonderful. It is a five generation of the Birch family, finished by Joanne Raymond for her mother, Vivian Emry.

We’re already planning next year’s show, bigger and better, we hope. We’ll see you there!
