The Gmeiner Art & Cultural Center is pleased to announce the 25th anniversary this September of The Mountain Laurel Quilt Guild (MLQG), which meets monthly at the Gmeiner. As part of that celebration, the members of MLQG are planning a bed turning event to take place at the Gmeiner on Friday, September 29th at 7:00 PM and on Saturday, September 30th at 1:00 PM. What is a bed turning? It’s basically a quilt show in an hour! The selected quilts which are stacked on a bed are turned over one at a time while a member explains and describes them.
At the 25th anniversary bed turning, the guild will highlight quilts made by some of its charter members and presidents, as well as some past raffle quilts made over the years by many members of the guild. The audience will hear the stories behind the quilts and what inspired the quiltmakers to make them. There will be quilts of all styles, colors, and fabrics, from traditional to modern.
This should be a fun and inspirational event for quilters and non-quilters alike, so be sure to mark your calendars and tell your friends. The bed turning is free and light refreshments will be served.
