National Quilting Day

Quilters have their own day. What a wonderful situation. We have an excuse to everyone around us that March 19th is our official day to do nothing except sit down and quilt! The 19th is this coming Saturday!

I already know what I am going to do. There are two quilt shows in our area. I am going to go see those. One is in Fairfield CA. It is North Wind Quilters Guild Cover Story XIV Quilt Show. It runs Saturday and Sunda from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the fairfield senior center. For more information go to

The second one is the Valley Quilt Guild's Bloomin' Fun! It is their 28th annual quilt show. It also is March 19th and 20th from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Sunday. It is heald at Yuba-Sutter Fairgrounds in Yuba City CA. For more information go to

What could be more fun to celebrate National Quilting Day than to go see beautiful quilts and shop the vendor displays.

Have a great day.

Keep on quilting!


  1. How neat is that. I am currently working on a quilt to raffel off for Relay for Life. We choose Saturday to be our day to quilt the quilt. We will celebrate in style. Happy Quilt Day!

  2. Perfect timing. Thanks for letting us know. You will have to let us all know how and where to get the tickets for the quilt.
