Our next “Spring on the Straits” quilt show, will be held in the spring of 2019 at the Historic Clocktower in Benicia.  As with shows of the past, our members display their works of fabric art – many are Traditional quilts, variations of classic quilts and others are new and very innovative. We expect to have about one hundred fifty quilted items displayed.  These will include wall and baby quilts, larger quilts and pieces of wearable art.  Our venue has a rich history and the quilts look right at home.

We provide light refreshments for a nominal fee.  There will be about 15 Vendors spaces.  We will have door prizes, a treasure hunt for kids, and a country store where you can purchase guild members offerings. Our 2019 Opportunity Quilt will also be on display.  The winning ticket will be drawn about 3 pm on Sunday.
