Over the last 31 years, West Branch has been highlighting the time-honored community tradition and history of quilting. WHO – Area quilters, seamstresses, would-be quilters, those who enjoy seeing this history and art, and the many who just love attending fun community events. The Annual Quilt Walk, which grows and improves each year, also benefits the local non-profit Hospice of Helping Hands, another of our long standing community assets serving patients and their families since 1979.
This 32nd year is no exception…and it all begins on Thursday, October 6 and runs through Saturday, October 8. Over 200 quilts will be on display throughout the town, along with quilting demonstrations, vendors, door prizes, a quilt raffle, a Sidewalk “Sewing Room” Sale and the Hugs For Hospice Boutique…..something for most everyone.
Participants may start their “Walk” by picking up their “Passport” at 205 Craft Emporium on Main Street, West Branch Public Library, or 4th Street Gallery. With their passport, they can relax and meander around to the locations at their convenience any or each day. The event runs from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Thursday and Friday, and from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Saturday.
Raffle Tickets for the 1840’s Sawtooth Queen Size Quilt are on sale now at these locations throughout West Branch: 205 Craft Emporium on Houghton Avenue; West Branch Library on North 4th Street, and Hospice of Helping Hands on the corner of Houghton and 4th Street during regular business hours. Tickets are only $2 each or 3 for $5 and all proceeds will be donated to our only local non-profit Hospice of Helping Hands. Supporters need not be present to win the beautiful quilt shown here.
