COSHOCTON – The Coshocton Canal Quilters are hard at work preparing for their 28th annual quilt show, which will be Aug. 7 – 9 from 10 a.m. – 6 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m. at the Presbyterian Church. This year’s theme is “Under the Stars” and admission is $5 with free parking. Quilts made with stars will be featured. Almost every room and hallway of the Presbyterian Church on the court square in Coshocton will be covered with more than 200 items including a variety of quilts and needlework.  A collection of antique quilts will be featured in the sanctuary. In addition to the quilt and needlework displays, there will be a “Hall of Honor” dedicated to our veterans, vendors, a “boutique” where items made by guild members will be sold, a box lunch and café.  Opportunity Quilt Tickets will be offered for a chance to win the quilt. Drawing is Sunday, Aug. 9, at 3:30 p.m.

The Coshocton Canal Quilters is a guild of well over one hundred members. They range from beginners to members who have national recognition. Hand quilting, machine quilting, piecing, appliqué, traditional and modern styles are all methods that will be on display.

The quilt show will be during the Coshocton Canal Festival. This will offer many activities for the whole family. Groups are welcome. Gather you friends and make a day of it. Bus parking is available. We can help you connect with local quilt shops and other things to do in the area. Please contact www.sites.google.com/site/coshoctoncanalquilters or Vickie Davis, Quilt Show Chair, at [email protected] for more information.
