The Keystone Quilters are hosting their annual Quilt Show in Pennsburg this year, at the Finland Mennonite Church (1750 Ziegler Road, Pennsburg, PA) this Saturday, October 14, 2017. Admission charge is $7 (12 and under are free), and the show is scheduled for 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. today. The show exhibits consist of a mix of traditional and modern quilt designs.
On September 24, 1983, a group of 15 women from Quakertown, Springtown, Sellersville, Pleasant Valley, and Perkasie, Pennsylvania met for the first time in the basement of Quakertown’s historic Burgess Foulke House. Our co-founders, Vicki Derenick & Brenda Kalata, wanted to provide a forum for area quilters to come together trying and evaluating new techniques, trouble-shoot quilting issues, as well as stimulate, challenge and expanded their quilting skills … the group called themselves “Keystone Quilters.”
Our show also has special exhibits, free demonstrations, door prizes, vendors, a guild sponsored boutique and to round off your Quilt Show experience … we have the famous “Keystone Cafe.”
