The 10th annual edition of the Woodlin Ties Quilt Show is to be held Saturday, Dec. 1 at the Woodlin School Auditorium located nearby Last Chance and promises to be a very exciting event. The show is hosted by the renowned Last Chance Quilters, a group organized 86 years ago.

Quilted articles which will be displayed include a couple which have hung in the curated biennial Colorado State Capitol Quilt Shows sponsored by the Colorado Quilt Council.

The “Colorado” item is one of several by the quilt maker of which one is in the possession of former Colorado Senator Wayne Allard and hung in Washington D.C. during his tenure in office.

Also to be on display are the very first sewing project bed quilts created by preteens, with other items to be exhibited including those designed by the quilter, including one with a space theme.

The show is open to the public from noon-4 p.m. Dec. 1 with free admission. Everyone is invited to visit and view the talents of quilters of all ages from beginners/novices to the skilled crafter. The show is held in conjunction with the annual Woodlin FBLA Chapter craft fair and the Jeff Sherman Memorial Invitational Basketball Tournament on that date.

Don’t miss the opportunity to see the treasures created and/or owned by those with ties to the Greater Woodlin Community of Woodrow, Last Chance and Lindon, while also doing holiday shopping at the craft fair, enjoying the soup and salad luncheon by the FBLA chapter before closing out the day with entertaining basketball games with boys and girls teams from Idalia, Prairie and Weldon Valley joining with the Woodlin Mustangs on the court.
