The Quilters Anonymous 37th Annual Quilt Show is coming to the Evergreen State Fairgrounds, a Monroe property that hosts an abundance of special events through the year. This year’s theme is “The Great American Coverup” and the show will take place March 16th through March 18th. The hours are Friday and Saturday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is $8 and parking is free. Those who ride the bus to the show can get a discount on admission.
Join more than 4,000 visitors from the Puget Sound region and British Columbia to view over 500 quilts. You’ll marvel at the quilting talent on display while checking out the quilts in twelve categories. There will be traditional displays as well as more innovative approaches and everything in between. This particular show is not juried, but will showcase some work by some world-renowned authors and quilt teachers. A few of the featured artists of this show are Joyce Fleckenstein, Jan Halgrimson, and Marjorie Meyers.
In addition to viewing the quilts, also pick up fabrics and other goods you may need for your projects at the show. A quilt will be raffled off and more quilts will be available for purchase to help keep you warm at your Monroe property. Also take advantage of free demonstrations of quilt making techniques each day. This is a great opportunity to improve your skills and ask questions of experienced quilt makers.
