The Los Alamos Piecemakers is hosting its annual Quilt Market 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24 at Crossroads Bible Church at 97 East Road.
The Jemez Mountain Bear Paw quilters are joining in hosting this event. The Quilt Market alternates each September with the Quilt Show. Nicole Dunn and Micki Taylor are co-chairs for this year’s Market. Quilt Guild members have made quilted items that will be on sale. Bed quilts, table runners, placemats, wall hangings and wearable items are just a few of the items to be on sale. There also will be a selection of holiday items.
There will be a section of second-hand and gently used quilt-related items for sale as well. Some offerings will include fabric, books, tools, patterns, unfinished projects and other quilt related items. There also will be a Silent Auction at the Quilt Market. Winners will be announced at 3:30 p.m. on the day of the market.
The Donation Quilt this year is titled, “A Modern Barnraising” and was pieced and quilted by members of the Quilt Guild. The winning ticket will be drawn at 3:30 p.m. on the day of the Market. Tickets for a chance to win the quilt will be on sale at the market.
The Los Alamos Piecemakers Quilt Guild is active in the community doing service projects throughout the year. The LA Piecemakers meet the fourth Tuesday of each month. Visitors and guests are welcome. For more information, visit here.
