Quilt Show

“Spring on the Strait”

April 30 and May 1, 2022

“Radiant Joy”
2021-2022 CSS Opportunity Quilt

CSS presents a biennial quilt show “Spring on the Strait” in the spring.

Our next “Spring on the Strait” quilt show, will be held April 30 and May 1, 2022
at the Historic Clocktower in Benicia.  As with shows of the past,
our members display their works of fabric art – many are
traditional quilts and others are new and very innovative. We
expect to have about one hundred fifty quilted items displayed. 
These will include wall quilts, larger quilts and pieces of wearable
art.  Our venue has a rich history and the quilts look right at home.  There will be
approx. 15 vendor spaces.  We will have door prizes and a country
store where you can purchase guild members offerings.
At this time, we won’t be offering any food items for sale.
