The Annual Heritage Quilt show will be open at 1 p.m. Oct. 10 at the Johnston County Agricultural Center. Members of the Johnston County Extension & Community Association, JoCo Quilters and friends will show quilts from their own collections, some of which they made, and others that family members or friends made.
More than 100 cataloged quilts are expected to be on display for viewing by attendees, some over 100 years old. Attendees will see a variety of fabrics, including feed sacks and traditional patterns. Stories about the quilts will be posted, and other types of heritage crafts will be present for viewing. Quilters will conduct demonstrations during the show.
A raffle will be held this year at the show. Four winners will choose a lap blanket. Tickets are $1 each or 12 for $10, and can be purchased from ECA members or Jayne McBurney. A swap meet of gently used craft and quilt-related items, unused kits, swatches, tools and notions will be available for purchase to raise money for service projects.
The event will be 1-7 p.m. Oct. 10, 9 a.m.-7 p.m. Oct. 11, and 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Oct. 12.
This free event will be held at the Johnston County Agricultural Center, 2736 N.C. 210, Smithfield. For more information, contact extention agent Jayne McBurney at 919-989-5380.
