Quilt show reflects on ‘Our treasured quilts’

Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild marks Canada’s 150th

Local quilters are honouring Canada’s 150th anniversary of confederation through their biannual fall quilt show this Friday and Saturday.

The event, called “Reflections: Our Treasured Quilts,” features hundreds of creations that members of the Chilliwack Quilters’ Guild have produced over the past two years. It also includes special quilts marking the country’s 150th birthday.

There are demonstrations, a quilt challenge, a merchants mall, white elephant table and a tea room.

Raffle tickets will also be available for one very special handmade quilt.

The event takes place at the Chilliwack Alliance Church, 8700 Young Road, and runs 5 to 8:30 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 20 and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 21.

Admission is $5 (husbands and children under 12, free).
