The Cranbrook Quilters’ Guild presents its biennial quilt show, “Mountains of Quilts” on Friday, May 8 and Saturday, May 9 at the Cranbook Alliance Church. Over two hundred and fifty quilts will be on display; with some for sale; all created by guild members. The show features a whole spectrum of quilts of every size: traditional, modern, artistic; as well as other quilted items, including handbags, table runners and other creations.

The quilts are also judged, so that attendees will be able to see those considered the best. Attendees are also encouraged to vote on their favourite, which results in the Viewers’ Choice Award.

Also included in the show is a selection of quilts that guild members have made to donate to the community. The guild has a long history of making quilts to comfort others; both local and international.

Tickets are five dollars for adults and two dollars for students. Children under 12 are free. Times are 12 noon to 7 p.m. on Friday, May 8 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 9. More information is available on the quild’s website at: www.cranbrookquiltersguild.ca
