Several baskets of treasures will be raffled at the quilt show as well as a beautiful embroidered quilt. Tickets for this amazing quilt will be sold only at the show. They are $5 each with only 200 available.

Piecemakers Quilt Club is delighted to offer classes by two talented Olympic Peninsula Quilters: Taunya Gormley and Gail Frick. Taunya will teach a Wonky Log Cabin Quilt Class on Friday. This quilt puts a spin on the traditional Log Cabin block. It allows you to use a Jelly Roll, scraps, yardage or fat quarters. There is still room available in this class. On Saturday, Gail will teach the Blue Onion Quilt Class. This is a great class to learn how to sew gentle curves and use your creativity to mix the blocks up in a variety of designs. Both classes will be all day from 9am-4pm at the First Congregational church in Forks. For more information and registration visit www.piecemakersquiltclub.org
