The Rossland Golden City Quilt Guild will be holding its semi-annual quilt show on Saturday, Oct. 17 and Sunday, Oct. 18.

The show will give all who attend a chance to see what the guild members have been working on, and even a chance to take home some quilts.

“All of the people that are members of the guild contribute quilts of all sizes that they’ve made throughout a couple of years,” says Janice Parsons, member of the guild. “We have displays, [and] some of them are for sale.”

Quilting enthusiasts will also have the opportunity to check out fabrics and supplies.

“We have quilt vendors come—we usually have two or three—and those are merchants from around the area that have fabric and quilt related notions to sell to people,” says Parsons.

There’s also a chance to win a quilt made by the guild, which will be raffled off at the show.

The show runs 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Entry is by donation and there will be coffee, tea and sweets available for a nominal fee.
