Calling All Quilts

Come May, the walls of the North Branch Library will be adorned with 50 to 60 quilts—the art pieces of local quilters who are participating in the 27th annual quilt show. “Sign-up will be starting soon,” according to librarian Debbie Carton, who is coordinating the show. “Look for notices at the North Branch; former exhibitors will receive their notices in the mail,” 

The show this year will be in memory of quilter Dorothy Vance who was one of the long-time exhibitors. She is remembered for injecting humor in her work with tongue-in-check comments stitched into her panels. 

An extensive catalog will tell the story of each quilt. The quilts will be on display from May 2 until May 28.
