Peacemaker’s Guild Quilt Show Oct. 18

Carol Harris shows a quilt pieced by Sarah Frances Worsham, her grandmother. Other helpers included her great-aunt and great-grandmother. It was made in Missouri, appears to be made of feed sacks and is between 80 and 100 years old.

DOUBLE SPRINGS - Do you like to see old quilts or help in making quilts? Would you like to display your craft? If you answered yes, then the quilt walk and show is a must see in Double Springs on Friday, Oct. 18. It begins at 10 a.m. and will last until 5 p.m. The walk will begin at the “Little Old Rock Building” and continue on to the new Winston Baptist Association building just beyond the elementary school.

The public is invited to display their own quilts at no charge during the event, which is sponsored by the GFWC Double Springs Study Club and the Peacemakers’ Quilt Guild. However, those wishing to do so must have their quilts at the Winston Baptist Association no later than Thursday, Oct. 17.

This will be the fourth annual show. At the “Little Old Rock Building,” attendees will be able to pick up an entry form which lists all of the places where quilts will be displayed. The Double Springs Study Club will have coffee, tea and snacks for refreshments.

There will be a quilt sign displayed in the window of each place where quilts are being displayed, thanks to Amy and Lorene Dodd from Main Street Yarns. After visiting all the places, those attending will be able to bring their entry form back to the rock building for a drawing for prizes, which will take place at 5 p.m.

At the display of quilts at the Traders and Farmers community building, there will be several quilts for sale, along with quilting supplies. Gail Harris and Charlotte Densmore will be among those selling quilts.

If you have a special quilt you would like to have displayed, please call Glennis Posey at 205-489-6205 or Pat Berry at 205-486-0221.

In observance of Alabama 200, the guild will also have a section devoted to patriotic quilts.

The guild meets the first and third Tuesday every month beginning at 9 a.m. at the Winston Baptist Association. All are welcome to come to the meetings.

For more information on the quilt walk and show, contact Joe Ann Durham at 205-489-5741.
