Quilters show their stuff

Sunbonnet Sue Quilt Club will present its 23rd annual quilt show from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. on July 17, 18 and 19 at Sequim Middle School, 301 W. Hendrickson Road.

More than 200 quilts will be on display, all created by club members and on display in the club's show for the first time.

The quilt show will include demonstrations of quilting techniques on community quilts, a Country Store and a Merchants Mall featuring quilt vendors from the region. Door prizes will be given out each day. Tickets for the 2009 raffle quilt can be purchased at the quilt show and the quilt will be raffled on Sunday afternoon. The winner need not be present to win.

The quilt show is two to three blocks from the Lavender Festival Street Fair.
