It’s time again for the annual Quilt Show that is held in conjunction with the Lum and Abner Festival at the Armory in downtown Mena. Sharon Chambers chairs the quilt show and says she’s looking forward to seeing the work of area quilters at the show. Interested entrants should bring their quilts to Mena’s Historic Armory on Wednesday, June 1st, between 8 a.m. and noon. “Your quilts will be admired by visitors from all over and you could win a ribbon,” said Chambers.
She also noted the excellent workmanship that created a hand-pieced, hand-quilted raffle quilt to be given away at the show during the Lum and Abner Festival June 3-4.
The Quilt show benefits the Single Parent Scholarship Fund and other Polk County Extension Homemaker Club projects and programs. For questions, contact Sharon Chambers at 479-243-0817.
