heritage of our quilting traditions is celebrated in this two-day event. Held in
the Village of Welches during the month of July, this special event brings
together heritage quilts of the past -- such as those dating back to the days of
the Oregon Trail, hand-sewn by those who made the 2,000-plus mile journey
westward -- with the artistic quilts of contemporary times. Besides quilts there
will be quilted wall hangings, table runners, place mats, pot holders, quillows,
throws, baby quilts, tote bags, quilts, and more including demonstrations on
quilting, plus storytelling. In addition, the old-time fiddlers will be on hand
for concerts and workshops. Free admission! Free parking!
