The exhibit will display more than 100 quilts and quilted items made by guild members. The event will showcase a queen-size raffle quilt, “Aegean Star,” a Judy Martin pattern made by guild members.
In addition, select vendors will offer fabrics, patterns, sewing machines and quilting accessories for sale. Shop at the boutique and resale booths and cast a vote for your favorite quilt and also bid on silent auction items.
The Brunswick Quilters support the community with many charitable efforts, including donating quilts to the newborn babies at Brunswick Novant Medical Center, homes for Habitat for Humanity, family shelters, The Boys and Girls Home of Waccamaw, military veterans, Quilts of Valor and for cancer patients undergoing chemotherapy.
