Quilt show this weekend at Allaire

June 3, 2011

This weekend, the Allaire Village Auxiliary will host its Antique and Family Quilt Show on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The women of the auxiliary were busy preparing for the show earlier this week — it will feature quilts dating from 1775 to the 1960s.

On Saturday, June 4, Karen Dever, an American Quilter’s Society Certified Appraiser, will give appraisals and a gallery talk for an additional fee.

Sunday, June 5, will feature guest speaker Joan Hamelberg, who will discuss fabric dating and antique quilts.

More than 50 quilts will be on display. For more information, visit the village’s website.
