The Amish Country Quilt Show returning to Buckeye Event Center, September 12-14, 2013
Holmes County, Ohio, The Barn Inn Bed and Breakfast is excited to inform you that the Amish Country Quilt show will be returning to the Buckeye Event Center at 624 Henry Street, Dalton on Thursday, September 12 and will continue through Saturday, September 14. The three day event will feature more than 200 beautiful quilts from around the country that will be on display. In addition to the quilt display, Marilyn Young (Apron-ology artist) will provide event attendees to a sweet selection of vintage aprons, and some personal creations, all chosen to illustrate the evolution of this important, much loved textile. Whether it's store bought, handmade, or handed down, if you are an apron wearer you will love her collection!
A Project Linus sew-in will be featured at the show as well. Project Linus provides love, warmth, and comfort to seriously ill, traumatized children, or those otherwise in need by the gift of new handmade blankets and afghans that are lovingly created by volunteer blanketeers. Attendees are encouraged to join in this opportunity to use their talents to create blankets for the local Project Linus group. Donations of supplies will also be accepted. The Mennonite Central Committee (a relief, service, community development and peace agency) will be at the show demonstrating Amish quilting techniques, and invite quilters to sit awhile at the quilt frame and stitch a quilt that will be donated to charity.
The Amish Country Quilt shows hours are from 10:00 am. to 5:00 pm. daily, and is open to the public. Parking is free. For more information visit www.amishcountryquiltshow.com or call 800-249-3154.
