Members of the Kootenai Valley Quilt Guild deemed it a success as the doors closed on the annual Quilt Show, held in the Memorial Center on Sept. 9 and 10.

This year the guild had the opportunity to host the show in the beautiful Center, which offered a wonderful area to display the many gorgeous quilts made by members and others from around the area. Also, with the larger venue, the Guild was able to include in the show, a Café with food and goodies, a boutique featuring quilted items for sale and a Quilting Techniques Demonstration area.

The grand finale was the drawing for the 2022 Quilt Raffle. The lucky winner drawn is Misty Pape of Libby. Money raised from the quilt raffle help fund the Guild throughout the year, enabling them to do community service projects, the Kids’ Sew Camp and the newly introduced Adult Beginning Quilting. The raffle is also the key support for the Guild’s annual Quilt Show.

“We would like to thank all of the talented quilters who displayed their quilts and helped to make our show a success,” said Angie Pankey, Guild President. “Each quilt was truly a winner!”

The Guild thanked everyone that attended their quilt show, including the Tender Lovin’ Quilt Guild members for the use of their display poles and help throughout the show, Hoot Owl Farms for the beautiful flowers, the Girls Scouts for security, the Faith Bible Church Youth for their help, the Kootenai Heritage Council for giving the group the opportunity to use the Memorial Center and for the support from their families.
