During today’s lull in rainstorms, Maryann went to the Community Center in downtown Grand Rivers to set up a display table during the 13th Annual Quilt Show. (According to the locals, this quilt show has entrants from all over the U.S. and is held at the same time as the one in Paducah.) Maryann heard that one of this year’s Grand River quilts was the Grand Prize Winner last year in Paducah! Here is a sampling of some of the quilts that are being displayed. The Quilt Show starts tomorrow, April 27, and continues through Saturday, April 30. The entry fee is only $3, and it gives you a chance to win a beautiful quilt! Besides quilts, there are many other handcrafted items for sale that would be great gifts.
No, Maryann has not taken up quilting. Here is a shot of part of her display. She is educating folks about improved nutrition and sharing a business opportunity with those who are interested. If you are in this neck of the woods, stop by and say “hi” to her and enjoy all the lovely quilts. (There is even a rumor going around that the sun will come out later this week!)
