4th Annual Quilt & Doll Show – March 2014

We had a great turn out on Saturday for our 4th annual Quilt and Doll Show!

People came from all over to see the array of quilts hanging down our halls. There were multiple quilt guilds present and many individuals who brought their own quilts to show. All our residents who had a quilt, put it up outside their door for everyone to admire. Julie Silber came to share and discuss with the crowds her impressive knowledge of quilt history. Make sure to come by next year for the show!
