The Quilt Lovers Guild of Seneca will be holding a quilt show in the library community room Friday and Saturday, July 13 and 14. The guild quilt show correlates with the library’s overall summer reading nighttime theme and especially the adult summer reading theme Between the Covers. Guild members will be showing quilts from their personal collections. Anyone who attends the quilt show can be entered into a drawing for a specially made quilt based on the beloved childrens book Goodnight Moon by Margaret Wise Brown. The donated quilt was inspired by the nighttime theme also. Anyone visiting the quilt show is invited to stop inside the library and view the challenge quilts made by the guild also. The nine challenge quilts were all based on the nighttime theme. Hours for the quilt show will be, Friday, July 13 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Saturday, July 14, 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We hope to see many visitors for the quilt show.
The Quilt Lover’s Guild of Seneca brought in their challenge quilts for display at the library. Their theme goes along with the night time theme of the Summer Reading program this year. There are pictures below, but be sure to stop in to see them for yourself. There may be more coming, so be sure to come back and check.
