A couple from Palmer, Tenn., has not missed a show.

Barbara Patton generously allows the use of the front room of the IBIS building and the bookcases become display racks. Organizers are anticipating a number of “first time” historic quilts that will each tell a memorable story. There will also be knitted afghans, dolls and other quilted and handcrafted items on display.

If you would like to display one or more of your treasures, bring them to the IBIS Building on Friday, April 29, between noon and 5 p.m.

Members of the local fce will take meticulous care of these prize quilts. No food or drinks are allowed to be brought into the show and visitors are asked to wear a pair of white gloves.

Visitors will be given the opportunity to make a donation to benefit the many fce community projects. They will also be asked to vote for their selection as “People’s Choice Quilt.” Ribbons will be awarded to the top four. For more information email Dianna Milner at <>.
